The South Colonie Central School District is committed to fostering relationships with our school community that captures and capitalizes on the energy of positive family involvement through varied modes and means of communication.
The community is invited to participate in school programming including a full roster of continuing education classes that occur annually in both the Fall and Spring semesters. Additionally, the the district recognizes the value that school facilities provide to the community at large and welcomes outside groups to rent the facilities when they are not in use for educational activities.
Continuing Education Program
South Colonie offers Continuing Education for all adults. Minimum fees are charged for registration, instruction and materials. A brochure listing the course offerings is mailed to all residents in August and December and classes begin each September and January.
While the district’s facilities are primarily for the purpose of educating students within the district, the Board of Education recognizes that the buildings and grounds are a valuable community resource and believes that this resource should be available to the community for specific uses that will not interfere with educational activities. Learn more about the use of our facilities.
The District uses MasterLibrary, the online facility request system, for all facility requests. With this system, reservation requests can are submitted easily and will be handled more efficiently. Renters are able to access photos and descriptions, see real-time availability, get estimated quotes and pay and submit insurance online.
A fee schedule for use of district facilities is approved by the South Colonie Board of Education annually.
Although the process of requesting/approval/management of facility use is now digital, what’s implemented on MaterLibrary, remains the same as dictated by the South Colonie Central School District board policies on facility use. The district’s administrative staff makes final decisions on all facility use requests.
