Need to use school space?
The Interagency Coordinating Board for the Community Use of Public Facilities (ICB/CUPF) is the County agency responsible for scheduling after hours and weekend use of County schools. This is a non-tax supported government agency and reimburses Montgomery County Public Schools for all staff, utility, maintenance and custodial supply impacts resulting from community use.
Accessing school space starts with an application and ends with a permit. The steps in-between are covered in the new user orientation class (User Education Training), which is conducted every Wednesday, from 9:00 am until 11:00 am, except for when the ICB has its quarterly meetings (6/16/10, 9/15/10, 12/15/10). Evening sessions are scheduled quarterly, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm (6/7/10. 9/13/10, 12/6/10, 3/7/11). All sessions are held at 600 Jefferson Plaza, Suite 300, Rockville, MD 20852. Call 240.777.2706 to reserve a seat. Updates to the schedule, along with an area map are posted at:
Requests for space received during CUPF’s scheduling windows are processed ahead of applications received during other times of the year. The windows are as follows:
July 15 to August 1
for use September 1 through March 31
January 15 to February 1
for use April 1 through August 31
However, as an accommodation, scout groups may request space for their regular meetings covering the entire school year between July 15 and August 1. Please note that schools have first priority for all space and CUPF cannot schedule community use until the schools schedules have been accommodated.
