Facility Use Requests and Information

  • The Lockport City School District encourages community use of school facilities when such use is in the public interest, does not conflict with school activities, and is not detrimental to the purpose of schools. Residents, staff members, and community groups can make facility use requests by following the steps below: 

    STEP 1 REGISTER FOR NEW ACCOUNT: Only needed for first-time use! All facility use requests are completed online. The first step needed to make an online facility use request is to create an ML Schedules user account. Be sure to complete all information fields and then click the submit button. If your registration was successful, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. If you already have an ML Schedules user account, please access it here.

    STEP 2 LOG-IN AND RESERVE SPACE(S): Once your account is created you can log in and start making facility reservations using ML Schedules.

    If you run into issues, you can always go to "User Resources" at the top of the ML Schedules page, or contact Karen Schleicher at 478-4840 or kschleicher@lockportschools.net at the Board of Education.
