As San Diego Unified School District continues to adjust to the impacts of the coronavirus, the need for safety through social distancing warrants that we continue to keep our school campuses and administrative sites closed during this pandemic until further notice.

For the protection of our students, families and community, Civic Center rentals are discontinued through June 30, 2020.  All facility rental permits will be cancelled and full refunds will be issued as soon as possible.  There are many refunds to process and, with administrative sites closed, staff will be working from home to process these refunds.  We thank you in advance for your patience.

Please check back on San Diego Unified’s website: from time-to-time for an update on when SDUSD will open school sites. Civic Center rentals may not resume until after school sites are reopened.  We appreciate your understanding.

Civic Center Permits

The California Education Code "Civic Center Act" guides how organizations, clubs, and associations formed for recreational, educational, political, economic, artistic, or moral purposes are permitted by district policy to use school buildings and grounds. Such use is called “civic center use” and must be subordinate to, and not interfere with, the instructional program or other public school purposes. Civic center use may be on either a free, direct cost recovery, fair rental value, or commercial basis.

To submit a request for use of facilities please complete the Rental Request Form (Microsoft Word or PDF) and email the form to
