Burbank Unified School District officials will charge the Boys & Girls Club $88,535 to use 10 school facilities during the current school year.
The facility use fee, school officials said, helps defray the cost for maintaining the sites and paying for custodial services.
The assessment, approved by the Burbank school board last week, is half of what the district could have charged the club. According to a district report, the full facility-use rate would have been $177,070.
Under the agreement, the district did not charge the Boys & Girls Club for use of its fields, which would have been $10 per hour for hundreds of hours of use.
In another move to reduce costs, the Boys & Girls Club — which serves 2,400 children with free or affordable after-school programs — moved its service at the three middle schools into classrooms, instead of auditoriums and cafeterias, because the fee to use those facilities is higher.
