Rules & Policies

PHILOSOPHY

The Cassia Joint School District #151 Board of Education recognizes the following.

  • The schools belong to the community and that the maximum use of these facilities for the good of all is desirable.
  • The interest of all taxpayers must be safe-guarded and that the school facilities may not be indiscriminately rented for the use of special groups except under well planned regulations and rental schedules.
  • The community has a large investment in school buildings and facilities, and believes such facilities should be used for legitimate community purposes by responsible organizations, associations and civic groups for educational, cultural and civic purposes, when such use will not conflict with or handicap the school program.

PROCEDURE

  • The availability of the King Fine Arts Center (KFAC) will be determined by the Center Director and/or the principal of Burley High School. In all instances, the use of the facility by the school will come first.

RULES

  1. Only KFAC trained personnel may operate KFAC equipment.
  2. The stage floor may not be marked with masking tape, paint, markers, etc.Marking of the floor may only be done with gaffers tape, which is available at the center. If a performance requires extensive use of gaffers tape, a small fee will be assessed to cover the cost of the tape.
  3. Food, drink or gum is not allowed in the Fine Arts Center. Water in closed containers is acceptable on stage. Exceptions may be made for banquets/dinners held on the stage.
  4. Flash photography is not always allowed during a performance. It distracts both the audience and the performers.
  5. Video taping is not always allowed during a performance. Some performances are copywrited and do not allow recording. When tapeing is allowed it may be done from a seat if a tripod is not used and if any LCD screen is off. Illuminated viewing screens are very distracting to audience members seated behind the camera. If a tripod is used, tapeing must be done from either the back of the house or behind the last row of the audience.
  6. HELIUM BALLOONS ARE NOT EVER ALLOWED IN THE KFAC. Party poppers or any form of confetti are not allowed. Nothing may be thrown into the audience.
  7. The use of all equipment, including dressing rooms must be arranged in advance. Last minute changes often cannot be accommodated as staff required to setup/strike or operate equipment may not be available.
  8. A KFAC Stage Manager must be present on the stage for all uses of the facility.
  9. If the KFAC Director or Assistant Director is not on the premises during a performance, the KFAC Stage Manager is in charge of the facility. Their directions must be followed.
  10. Children are to be supervised at all times in the KFAC. Running in the aisles, etc. will not be allowed.

PORTABLE SOUND SYSTEMS

 The King Fine Arts Center has a professional quality sound system. Portable sound systems may be used in The King Fine Arts Center but are subject to the following restrictions:

1. Speakers setup only in the front of the house normally cause the sound to be too loud in the front part of the audience and too soft in the back. Therefore we ask that you provide a feed from your mixer board into our sound system so that we can equitably distribute the sound over the entire house. You may use your own mixer board, monitors and microphones, but we ask that our amps and speakers be used.

2. Portable sound/light boards placed next to the existing house sound board oftenblock the view of our patrons. If you are using any in-house portable equipment it must not exceed four feet in height.

Exceptions to these rules must be approved in writing by the KFAC Director.
