The Portsmouth School Board recognizes that school facilities are a community resource and establishes a facilities use policy intended to make school buildings generally available as outlined below for community use. The City of Portsmouth Public School Buildings and Athletic Fields are dedicated to the municipal government’s use for public school education of children from kindergarten through 12th grade. Public school property is not an open public forum for expressive content for members of the public who are not students, except as provided under these terms and conditions. Public access to School Facilities, as defined below, is permitted only during times when the student instructional periods are over and school is not formally in session. Rental Fees apply and are listed in the School Usage Rental Agreement form.
