  • Use of School Facilities
     
    The Derry Township School District may permit community organizations to use district buildings or grounds for approved special events. Inquiries or requests to use district facilities must be made through the Buildings and Grounds Office. The district will process requests on a first-come, first-served basis, except that school groups will be given priority over external groups.
     
    Use of DTSD Tracks

Community members wishing to exercise on Derry Township School District-owned running tracks may do so between dawn and dusk when the facilities are not being utilized for school-related activities.
    Several special provisions apply to the use of the high school track:
    • The use of the synthetic turf playing surface is prohibited.
    • The following items are not permitted inside the fencing surrounding the track.
      • Food
      • Gum
