Community Use of Schools

Community Use of Schools is an initiative that supports access to school space outside of school hours for not-for-profit community groups and as such the Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board extends the use of our school facilities to our community.

Contact Information

All rentals should be requested through the Facilities Services Department.
Please do not contact the schools directly.
