New Online Building Use Scheduling System to Debut in October
Do you organize meetings for your scout group, homeowners association or cultural organization? On Monday, October 3, a new process for scheduling events in FCPS buildings will be launched. FCPS is excited to introduce Community Use, an online facility use scheduling system. This system will replace the current building use paper application (ADM-20) process and provide a quicker response time for community use requests.
To begin, a meeting organizer must register online to become an organization event coordinator (OEC). Once approved, an OEC can submit facility use requests for one or more organizations.
Some features of the system include:
- Ability to view public events on the calendar and to check availability of space before submitting a building use request.
- Automatic routing of requests for approval to appropriate school personnel and notification to OEC of event status.
- Simple access to view, print, and download frequently used facility-use related documents (usage policies, fee charts, etc.)
More details—including training manual, online tutorial and other pertinent information—will be available on the Community Use section website (www.fcps.edu/fts/comuse) on October 3.
Marnie Gaffney, one of the SUMs of 51-11, created great handouts listing the requirements by level. Click here to download them or view them on the Bridging info page on Leader 411.
