Changes are coming to Huntsville City Schools' facility use guidelines.
The district discussed the changes on Thursday during a board of education meeting. Currently, there are two categories of facility use customers, Class A and Class B. Moving forward, there will also be a Class C category, and the definitions of the classes will change.
Previously, Class A customers were district organizations, district affiliates like boosters and PTAs and character building organizations like Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
Now, Class A will only include organizations directly accountable to the superintendent through schools' principals, including athletic boosters and PTAs. They will not pay a facility fee, only support staff fees.
Class B previously included all other groups. Class B will now be categorized as organizations that provide education-related services to Huntsville City Schools without charging fees to students, like Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. They will pay both a Class B facility fee and support fees.
Class C now includes all other groups, which will pay Class C facility and support staff fees.
The changes will take effect on August 1st. Reservations made before August 1st will be managed and invoiced under the district's current rates and classifications.
