  • Looking to rent a BSD building for your event?

    BSD is happy to offer the use of school facilities outside of school hours by groups and organizations.  Interested groups apply to use any of the BSD rooms, gyms, or sports fields.  Facility applications go through many steps for approval. Please submit your application at least 45 days before the date you are requesting.

    How to Apply for Facility Use in BSD:

    1. Contact the school to make sure that the areas, dates, and times you prefer are available. Each year, certain days are blacked out and BSD buildings are not available.  Click here for a list of blackout dates.

    2. Make sure you have the required documents ready to be turned in with your application.

    With the application, you will need:

    • The $20 application fee
    • Proof of Liability Insurance - Brandywine School District must be named as "additionally insured"
      The Certificate Holder box on your insurance certificate must read
                  Brandywine School District

                  Wilmington, DE 19809
    • For individual users like civic associations, Release of Liability forms must be completed.  These take the place of liability insurance.
    • Proof of tax-exempt status - Any non-profit must have a copy of  the approval letter your organization received from the IRS that grants the organization their 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(4) tax-exemption status.
