The Ankeny Community School District facilities and buildings are owned, maintained, and supported by the public. The Board of Education actively seeks to promote and respond to the educational, recreational, civic, and cultural needs of its community through the total resources of the community schools. However, all school facilities have been primarily erected and maintained for the use of the students of Ankeny Schools and shall not be used for another purpose that will conflict with that use (Board Policy 1004.40).
The district requires at least a two-week notice and reserves the right to deny, move, cancel, and postpone any activity.
Prices will vary depending on the requested space and what type of group and/or activity. A $100 deposit or greater is required prior to receiving access to a facility for community rental. The following applies to Classes 3 and 4: Custodial hires will be required at 50 attendants or over, and any event held in a gym.
**All renters will be required to have a two million dollar insurance policy.
**Please read the Facilities FAQ for more information on renting before submitting a request.
Requests for events through May 2023 are now being accepted beginning September 1. Public access during the week does not begin until 6:01pm for an elementary building, and 7:00pm for a secondary building. Please click link here to request space.
