FACILITY EVENT RENTALS

Thank you for your interest in a renting a facility in the Grand Prairie Independent School District. The taxpayers of the Grand Prairie Independent School District are proud of the District's facilities and have a vested interest in the maintenance and upkeep of the buildings and grounds. The management of these facilities has been placed in the hands of the Board of Trustees, or their designee, where accountability for the utilization and security is paramount.  The District provides a wide range of facilities available for public use. Guidelines for facility use are clearly established in the Texas Education Code (37.195, 37.125, and 45.033) and District Local Policies GKA, GKB, and GKD. In compliance with these codes and policies, the Grand Prairie Independent School District has established the following procedures for facility rental.
