Facility Usage (This should be handled by Program Coordinator)
In order to get a place to meet, you will need to secure space with Donna Wagner, Brandon Community Ed Director.

Talk to Tim Oliver, Brandon Technology Department, Office: Brandon ITEC Center
The following will be handled by him this year:

  • Tim will be coordinating teams this year. toliver@brandon.k12.mi.us
  • Facility Usage Form
  • Donna Wagner dwagner@brandon.k12.mi.us
  • Team Location – Brandon ITEC Center (Default) We can use the Brandon Middle School but not as a regular meeting place.
  • Note: If you fill out the form with your name, you must be in attendance at the meeting
  • If you have another coach, put both your names on it.
  • First event schedule, make sure attach your volunteer Data Sheet with the Facility Usage!
  • Items to consider:
    • The district is not open on Sundays
    • Saturdays can be difficult due to custodians not being available.
    • Alternatives: Brandon Library, Coach Hosted meetings at their home (Volunteer Form needs to be submitted of the host)
