• Civic Center Permits 

    The major function of the Civic Center Permit program is the issuance of the appropriate permit to allow for the use of school facilities in conformance with the California Education Code mandate and the Board of Education rules, which require that each and every public school facility be made available as a civic center to members of the community for supervised not-for-profit recreational activities, meetings and public discussions, when regular school activities are not disrupted.

    TO QUALIFY FOR A PERMIT

    Activity must be not-for-profit and open to the public. A certificate of Insurance is required for the use of all LAUSD owned facilities. At LAUSD’s sole discretion, certain events may require additional insurance or waivers. Your Certificate of Insurance must be approved by the LAUSD Division of Risk Management and Insurance Services (Risk Management) prior to the execution of a Civic Center Permit.
