Individuals and groups, profit and non-profit organizations may rent school facilities. A number of area organizations actively use Greater Lawrence Tech for their programs and activities. GLTS is the Merrimack Valley location for ServSafe courses. Andover Community Services holds classes at Greater Lawrence Tech in cooking and various crafts. Non-profit organizations and community groups that serve the needs of youth will get priority in rentals. Activities related to GLTS students and staff take precedence over outside rentals. Rentals that could interfere with Greater Lawrence student activities and school functions will not be allowed. If emergency conditions necessitate the closing of the school, all use and rental will be automatically canceled or postponed.
