Facilities Use Page
The Bedford School Board allows the use of school facilities by the community for educational, recreational, civic and cultural activities. When space is available, at times that do not interfere with District instructional programs, student activities and school related groups, community members may apply to reserve school facilities on a scheduled basis. A brief description of the application process has been provided below. A list of Frequently Asked Questions can be accessed here.
To reserve a school facility, a Request for Facility Use online application must be completed. If this is the first time that you are submitting a facility use request online, you will need to follow these instructions to request an account and setup your organization. After your organization has been setup and approved, you will get a notification that you are able to submit a request for facility use. Click here to view the instructions to login and request facility use.
A listing of facilities available for use can be viewed here. Depending on the type event you wish to hold, the application process may require review and approval of the Bedford School Board and/or the Bedford Police and Fire Departments. For more information on when these approvals are required, please refer to the Health & Safety section below. A certificate of insurance must be on file at the SAU Office prior to any facility use approval.
Requests for the use of all school and town athletic fields must be made through the town's Parks and Recreation Director at 472-5242.
