The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School Districts approve an agreement with the City of Santa Monica to allow access to Santa Monica High School’s swimming pool, play fields, courts, gymnasium and other facilities.

The exchange entails an estimated $5.5 million for the 2011-2012 academic year from the November 2010 voter approved half cent sales and transactions use tax that began on April 1, 2011 and includes access to facilities which are either unused or underutilized during non-school hours.  The agreement will be in effect for ten years and there is an option for it to be extended for another ten years.  Additionally, the board approved a memorandum of understanding for a civic-center joint use agreement that will allow residents to use the school facilities during off hours in exchange for the building of a new gym and renovation to the high schools amphitheater.
