Public School Building Use

The American Federation of School Administrators believes that public schools should be used as resources for the local community. Programs that offer adult education, parenting, family counseling, and other extracurricular activities are appropriate activities for before and after school programs offered at public school buildings. The Federation strongly believes that closed public school facilities that have been deemed safe can also be used effectively for public preschool, day care, job training centers and adult education centers. However, the Federation opposes the selling or leasing of public school buildings to organizations that provide direct educational services to students and/or are in direct competition with public schools.
