School board OKs new facilities policy

The Baltimore County school board unanimously voted Tuesday night to adopt a new policy that gives community organizations and the public more access to using school facilities.

The old policy had been the subject of criticism by community groups and parents who said it prevented events that had raised thousands of dollars for PTAs.

The school board decided to add language that says it "recognizes that school facilities are an essential component of the communities which they serve" and allows both nonprofit and for-profit organizations to use them.
