School Board Members and the Shared Use of School Facilities

School boards have a crucial role to play in supporting shared use in school districts. 

School boards work to set policy and establish goals for the district, allowing school boards to make shared use and physical activity part of the basic way that the district operates. Boards often must struggle with limited resources and competing priorities, and so shared use can provide great benefits for the district, helping to maximize resources, providing more for less, and improving student academic performance.
