Playing Smart: Maximizing the Potential of School and Community Property Through Joint Use Agreement

Description:

This guide is designed to help community leaders and school staff develop and implement joint use agreements, or written contracts between public and nonprofit agencies, that make it easier for community members to access local school facilities (e.g., gyms, fields, basketball courts, and playgrounds). Complete with model agreement language and success stories from communities around the country, this toolkit provides a comprehensive overview of the most common ways to finance joint use arrangements and guidance on how to overcome obstacles that may arise in negotiating and enforcing a joint use agreement.
