Haywood County Schools Consider Fees for use of School Facilities

Haywood County Schools are currently in debate over whether or not to begin the institution of fees for the use of school facilities to outside groups. For some time now many clubs such as Scouts, Adult Sports, and Youth Cheerleading groups have used the fields and gyms for practice. An estimated 200 groups use school facilities throughout Haywood County. The Haywood County School Board feels that it is un-fair for the school to pay for the cost of electricity and heat among other things. The Haywood County School Board has not made a decision on whether or not to institute fees for groups using school facilities at this time, but they are working on a plan for next year.
