Kyrene has a wide variety of facilities located throughout Tempe, Chandler, and Ahwatukee to meet your organization’s needs. School facilities and the District Office/Ben Furlong Center are open for lease to any person, group, or organization for any lawful purpose in the interest of the community.
Facility Rentals In a NutshellRequests for use of District facilities may be made by completing a Facility Request Form (below). Once a facility (i.e., the school, Ben Furlong Education Center) has approved a request, it is then reviewed by the District’s designee. The District’s designee shall review the submitted request, checking to be sure the applicant has provided all of the necessary information. The District’s designee will assign the applicant a Category according to the Category structure outlined in KF–EC.If the applicant submitted all necessary fees and paperwork (i.e., request, insurance, deposit), the request is then considered for approval by the District’s designee. We use a Window of Opportunity system for facility requests (this is not a first-come, first-served system). The schedule below indicates the dates on which facility requests are accepted. We will accept facility requests throughout the year (on an ongoing basis); however, first priority for use is given during the following windows of opportunity:
Dates of use: Window of opportunity: Fall (August - December) March 1 - 20 Spring (January - May) August 1 - August 20 Summer (June, July) January 1 - January 20
At the close of the window, the District's designee will review all of the requests and assign use allocations based on a predetermined set of criteria (i.e., total number of Kyrene youth served, total number of participants, organizations in good standing with the District). After initial allocations are made, any remaining available space will be opened up on a first-come, first-served basis.
