We will not be accepting any applications for use of facilities prior to that evaluation. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Community Members & Organizations

Thank you for your interest in having the Eau Claire Area School District serve your building use needs.
 
The Eau Claire Area School District buildings and grounds are first and foremost for the education and enrichment of our students. Secondarily, they serve as a valuable community asset for educational, governmental, civic, cultural and recreational activities of the citizens of Eau Claire. The following procedures, instructions and fees are intended to best maintain the facilities for the students and community. The use of all school facilities will be at the discretion of the Eau Claire Area School District and the granting of permission to use school property shall not be construed as an endorsement of any individual or group by the Eau Claire Area School District.

All community, non-school district activity/event requests for building and site use will be handled through the Facility Use Office, located in the ECASD Service Center, at 623 N Hastings Way, Eau Claire (next to U-Haul).

There are various outdoor fields/areas located at each of our school sites. Organizations may submit Applications for Facility Use to schedule these areas for use the same as for our indoor spaces (note available times in General School Use, above). In order to keep our fields in proper condition they need to be fertilized, watered and seeded, so it may be necessary to close them for periods of time. Please do not use any field marked for rest. Any fields or lawns being fertilized will be posted in advance as required by law. Field Maintenance Schedule

District Tennis Courts will not be scheduled for use by community groups during the month of August due to high school practices and tournaments.
