Title

B5.01 - Approval to Waive the Facility Usage Fees for the Bullard Family Foundation Summer Technology Camp at Sligh Middle School (Chief of Schools)

Description

The Bullard Family Foundation would like to host a Summer Technology Camp for 45 Sligh Middle Magnet School students and are requesting a waiver of rental fees. The students will be divided into 3 groups of 15 that will learn Coding and App Development, Video Game Design and Video Production. School Board policy permits outside agencies or organizations to request use of school facilities with the agreement that these organizations pay a rental fee and provide a certificate of insurance. Organizations that are non-profit and provide service to the community can request waiver of rental fees.
