The primary purpose of Oakwood Schools' facilities is to provide the youth of the community a sound educational program. The Board of Education understands the complete function of education is not achieved until the school facilities are made available, whenever possible, to serve the entire community.
To accomplish this objective, the Board shall, upon the electronic submission of a facility request form and subject to the requirements of applicable regulations and fee structure, permit the use of school facilities for auxiliary, educational, recreational, cultural, civic, social, religious or other Board-approved purposes as noted in the Oakwood City School District policy 7510 based upon availability of the requested facility.
School operations and events will take precedence in all facilities. District playgrounds are not open to the public during the school day. Lane and Mack Hummon stadiums will allow individual public activities during open hours but will be closed to the public during District and rental events. Lane Stadium will be closed to the public from 12 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Monday.
Non-Oakwood Schools groups of 10 or more wishing to participate in an activity at either stadium must follow the facility use process.
All facility use requests must be submitted electronically through our electronic facility request form. To help you through this process, please follow these step by step instructions.
