Video recorded events will usually require two technicians for the event.  All the prep work, rehearsal work, and closing work will be billed $50.00 per hour also – generally only requiring one technician for these activities.

Any individual or organization that contracts to rent the Kelly STEAM School auditorium must provide their own computer and operator when their program includes: PowerPoint presentations, video programs, or downloaded music. The control room operator will only play commercially produced DVD and CD disc on auditorium equipment. Only NPS employees are allowed to operate the tech equipment.

The Superintendent or his/her designee has the authority to waive the auditorium rental fee for Group A, with proof of extenuating circumstances.

Police coverage (if necessary) must be arranged directly by the Grantee and proof of coverage must be shown to Norwich Public Schools.

The school district reserves the right to authorize the number of police, fire, custodians, or other safety personnel required for each activity.

Staff fees increase annually based on negotiated contracts and rental fees will be addressed on an as-needed basis.

We will make every effort to ensure the events run smoothly and to prep all technical equipment prior to events. Norwich Public Schools will be held harmless from any unforeseen outages or technical difficulties
