Facility Rentals

Rockford Public Schools encourages the use of school buildings and grounds by the community for educational, recreational, civic, and cultural activities to the extent possible under the law.

What Facilities Can I Rent?

RPS 205 facilities are available for rent to the public year-round, depending upon availability after use by school functions. The district operates two stadiums, five high schools, seven middle schools, and 35 elementary school buildings. Typical areas available for public rental include athletic fields, auditoriums, cafeterias, classrooms, gymnasiums, pools, and stadiums. Hourly fees are charged for using Rockford Public Schools buildings. Custodial services are charged when applicable. The Rockford Board of Education governing policy 8.20 - Community Use of Facilities allows for public use of school facilities.
