Facility Use

  • Valued Wylie ISD Partners

    Wylie ISD has made the careful decision to suspend facility use of all its buildings due to the COVID pandemic until further notice.  We will continue to work with our local and state health authorities in monitoring the situation and apologize for any inconveniences.

    Leasing of fields and use of parking lots may be allowed and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.  Please contact Nathan Watson at nathan.watson@wylieisd.net for information and the proper application process, including a COVID Compliance Plan. 

    Finally, Pardon our Progress....due to substantial construction activity beginning in September 2019 (and continuing through August 2021), access to use of Wylie ISD high school facilities is restricted to campus based and district use only. Thank you for your support and consideration during this process.


    Use of Wylie ISD Facilities

    Public school buildings, grounds, and equipment are financed and maintained for the sole purpose of promoting and advancing the academic and athletic education of Wylie ISD students. Priority of usage is given first to campus and various department related activities.

    Wylie ISD also believes that the schools, and associated facilities, belong to the community and may lease space to qualified organizations and civic groups, specifically, those that serve the students and community of Wylie ISD and meet the following criteria: 

    1. Proof of non-profit status (i.e. 501 c3 documentation)
    2. Successful completion of an application for facility use form
    3. Certificate of Insurance (see General Conditions of Facility Use and Sample CoI)
    4. Prepayment of all estimated charges
    5. An organization's active membership or participation is comprised of 80% residents of Wylie ISD

    Each school year, campuses and various departments have until September 1, to secure and reserve space for their activities.  The district entertains application for facility use beginning August 1, but does not approve them until after September 1. 

    For more additional information or questions about qualifications, please contact Nathan Watson, Executive Director of Operations at nathan.watson@wylieisd.net.

    Athletic Fields/Parking Lots

    All athletic fields including the turf fields at Wylie High, Wylie East, Shaffer Stadium, McMillan Junior High and Cooper Junior High are restricted from open public use.  Only the track areas at McMillan, Cooper and Shaffer are open to the public.  Qualified, non-profit organizations may apply to lease time and space on the turf fields at McMillan, Shaffer and Cooper. Please refer to the links below for more information.  Requests may be made through the Facilities Department by contacting nathan.watson@wylieisd.net.   Please, no pets allowed on the track or athletic fields.

    Grassy areas around Wylie ISD campuses that are NOT fenced or gated are open to the public to use for sports practices.  Use is on a first-come, first serve basis and does not require a formal application.

    Use of Wylie ISD parking lots must be reserved through the Facilities Department and may require special permitting from the City of Wylie.  A Certificate of Insurance and Waiver of Liability are required from groups which are not school based and/or are using the lot for fundraising purposes.
