EFFCTIVE JULY 1, 2018 FEES WILL CHANGE
Dear Community Members,
For many years, Poway Unified School District has endeavored to make it as affordable as
possible for members of our community to use our facilities. We’ve managed to keep these
rates low, even as our costs have increased. However, we are now at a point where we are
losing money and unable to cover the costs of maintaining our buildings and fields. In order to
remain fiscally responsible, we find that we are forced to increase our facilities fees, at an
acceptable level, in order to cover our operating and maintenance costs.
At its February 8, 2018 meeting the PUSD Board of Education was presented with a new facility
use fee schedule that will go into effect this coming summer. This new fee schedule was
recommended and supported by our District Budget Advisory Committee, which included input
from various community members and parents. We also surveyed neighboring school districts
and found that our new rates are very competitive and align with what other districts charge.
The primary purpose of the Poway Unified School District is to ensure student success and
achievement. However, if we can’t keep our educational facilities usable and safe then we
adversely impact the learning opportunities for our children. Thank you for your continued support.
Once you receive an email from SchoolDude/FS Direct stating your request has been
APPROVED and ACTIVATED
your request has been processed through the PUSD District Office and is ready to proceed forward. If you do not receive an email, it could be that your request did not go through. Please check your requests by clicking on the “My Requests” tab located at the top of the web page. Notifications for all requests are sent via email only for all requests status. Approved/Activated or Approved/Tentative means your request is still pending processing.
It is the responsibility of the organization booking the requests to check the request status via the online system. You may log into www.MySchoolBuilding.com and click on the “My Requests” tab. Requests are filed in the system under the “Booked By” email address. Under the My Requests tab all the Schedule ID’s for the booked by email address will be listed in order, by the last request made. Next to each schedule ID number is a magnifying glass. Click on the magnifying glass and a new window will open with the approved and activated dates for that schedule. Dates that have been cancelled or declined will not appear in the new window.
Please note that each group is responsible for all set up and clean up involved with their request including emptying trash and cleaning floors. Please schedule your time appropriately. Restrooms close 30 minutes prior to end time.

Public Use Of School Facilities Policies
All requests are accepted on May 1 or after for the upcoming summer and school year. Bookings are available from July 1 through June 30 of the following year (example: July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2013). Bookings are based on a Fiscal year, not a Calendar year. Requests are booked on a first come, first served basis, with the exception of multiple groups requesting use of the same property, date and times. In this instance, time will be divided between the conflicting groups with priority given to non-profit youth groups where the facility best suits their requirements.
There are no reservation guarantees. An internal group may 'bump' a group out at any time. Even at a moment's notice.
If checking with the school site for availability, please remember that even though the school site may have the room available, your request may still be denied at the district level. Do not assume that you have obtained your reservation until you receive a confirmation email from the FS Direct System. The district office DOES NOT check availability at any site.
Requests must be submitted 30 days prior to the event, per board policy.
