Before you head out to the Friday Happy Hour consider that question: can you serve booze at a facility owned by the school? We actually have an Attorney General’s opinion on this subject from 1998. In LO-98-002, the AG’s office told us that you may serve alcohol at a facility owned by the school district if it is leased out to another entity and is not located on the grounds or a building of a “public school.” The question concerned the Student Activities Complex owned by Socorro ISD. The folks in Socorro wondered if they could lease the facility to non-school groups, and allow them to serve alcohol. Assistant AG Rick Gilpin said that they could. We found this opinion at 1998 WL 51094.
So how bout that!
