            WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant entered into a Lease Agreement (the “Lease Agreement”) dated July 15, 1999 and amended May 17, 2004 for the lease of the Old Crozet Elementary School; and


            WHEREAS, Landlord and Tenant desire to again amend the Lease Agreement;


            NOW, THEREFORE, Landlord and Tenant, for the sum of Ten and NO/100 Dollars ($10.00) and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, agree as follows:


1.                   In addition to the Option to Renew set forth in Paragraph 1.5 of the Lease Agreement and the Option to Renew set forth in the Lease Amendment dated May 17, 2004, Tenant agrees to extend the lease for a term of twelve (12) months (ending July 31, 2007), and shall also have the option to renew the Lease for an additional term of six (6) months.  Tenant must exercise the option to renew the lease for the additional term of six (6) months by providing written notice in accordance with Section 16.1 of the Lease Agreement on or before January 1, 2007.  The renewal term(s) shall be on the same terms and conditions of the Lease, except as expressly agreed to by the parties.  The rent to be paid by Tenant during the renewal term(s) shall be calculated according to Section 1.7 of the Lease Agreement.


2.                   Notwithstanding anything in the Lease Agreement to the contrary, Landlord shall have the right to use the auditorium and restroom facilities on the Property one day per month on Friday evening or Saturday at no cost to Landlord.  ”Friday evening” shall be defined to mean after 6:00 P.M. on Friday. Any request for use of the Property shall be made in writing by the Landlord not less than thirty (30) days in advance of the date of use.  Landlord shall endeavor to schedule use of the Property at times not inconsistent with use by Tenant, provided, however, any written request made by Landlord ninety (90) days in advance shall be honored unless the use is scheduled on the Tenant’s school-use calendar or Tenant demonstrates that a prior use of the Property by the Tenant cannot reasonably be rescheduled.  Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord to schedule its use of the Property and shall provide Landlord with a copy of its school-use calendar, as updated from time to time.


3.                   Landlord shall be responsible for managing and overseeing the use of the Property while being used by Landlord, including opening and closing the Property for use.  During Landlord’s use of the Property, Tenant’s teachers shall have access to classrooms and Tenant’s cleaners shall be permitted to clean those areas of the Property not being used by Landlord provided it does not unreasonably interfere with Landlord’s use of the Property.  Landlord shall provide on-site security to protect the Property and shall return the Property to Tenant in the same condition found prior to Landlord’s use.  Landlord will maintain comprehensive liability insurance against liability arising out of its use of the Property in amounts equal to its general liability policy for all other purposes.


            IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned have executed this Lease Amendment this _______ day of __________________, ___________.
