Booking School Spaces

The Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) welcomes and encourages the use of school spaces outside of school hours for local community groups. The goal of the Community Use of Schools Program is to make our schools community spaces where community members can gather, volunteer, attend programs and become physically active.  The Community Use of Schools program aims to provide affordable, accessible spaces for local non-profits and other organizations in need of a space to host meetings, workshops, recreational programs, sport leagues and other events.
