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. email@example.com
- Facility Usage Form
- Donna Wagner firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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)
They are a necessity but if a person is going to work with kids for Brandon School District on a “regular” basis, they need to have a background check done.
