The Community Use of Schools (CUoS) program supports AFTER-HOUR, community organized activities planned on school grounds for indoor and outdoor activities including, but not limited to, recreational, educational, cultural, theatrical and art related events, festivals, municipal or civic events. School facilities access rates are offered to non-profit organizations at subsidized rates in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Education through funding provided by the provincial government.

As a general rule, space is made available from mid September to mid June, Monday through Friday from 6:00pm until 9:00pm in elementary schools and from 6:00pm until 10:00pm in secondary schools. Weekend and school break use will vary depending on staff availability and scheduled maintenance projects. Any after-hour co-curricular, extra-curricular, Board and school organized and administered activities - for example, but not limited to professional development, student exams, school plays, school dances, Board and Ministry meetings - shall take priority over external community user group activities at all times.
