When a state of emergency is called, many government crisis response plans kick into gear and in some cases, this includes funding and reimbursement for expenses, loss of revenue, and hardship due to an emergency situation. By "suspending" reservations, public space owners like school districts will have access to a report showing all lost revenue—numbers that can and should be included in future budget analysis and reporting. Once coronavirus is under control, these suspended reservations can be reactivated in order to repurpose and reschedule events where possible.
How can Facilitron help?
Facilitron will continue to monitor incoming reservation requests and will, if desired by the district, automatically suspend anything that comes in over a certain period of time. Facilitron will then provide training on suspending reports, share best practices from our network of districts, and keep renters in the loop.
