Home :: Community :: Facilities Use
To better serve our community stakeholders and to determine field availability during inclement weather, the EGUSD has established a field status hotline. Please call (916) 686-7560 to determine if field usage is permitted on any given day. The hotline will be updated on a regular, and in some cases, daily basis so community users need to always call before accessing the fields. Thank you for your cooperation.
Effective January 1, 2011 the Elk Grove Unified School District has revised the facilities use policies and fee structure to accommodate the changing needs of community partners and the district.
The Board of Education is committed to providing access to the district’s facilities when they are not designated for school site curricular or extra-curricular activities. While the district provides access to school facilities, practical economics and California Education Code allow the district to charge minimal fees to cover the associated costs of their use.
The changes follow several meetings with community stakeholders who provided input into the fee structure. These stakeholders include: EGUSD staff, the Cosumnes Community Services District, the Elk Grove Youth Sports Association, Southgate Parks and Recreation Inc., Boy and Girl Scout representatives and other community youth groups.
Revenues generated by the new fees will be used to maintain the fields, gymnasiums, multipurpose rooms, and other district facilities that incur wear and tear produced by usage beyond the curricular day. Funds will also be designated for the replacement of supplies that are consumed during community activities and equipment that may deteriorate over the course of time as a result of greater than expected use.
