Ready to launch a joint use agreement with your school or city government? Download and tailor these sample resources.
Joint use agreements (JUAs) can promote public recreational use and enjoyment of green schoolyards. These agreements outline the terms and conditions for shared use of public property or facilities among two separate government entities (often a school and municipality). Four sample agreements can be downloaded and customized for use in these scenarios: use of outdoor school facilities during non-school hours; use of indoor and outdoor school facilities during non-school hours; authorized use of school facilities by third parties during non-school hours; and joint use of district and municipal recreation facilities.
