DepartmentBuildings & Grounds
Welcome to the Buildings and Grounds web page. Our department is committed to providing a safe, caring, and well-maintained environment for students, staff, and the community.
The School District of La Crosse believes that its buildings should be open to the community as much as practical provided that such use does not interfere with school programs. Given school funding constraints, the District can not offer that opportunity at the cost of regular educational programming and therefore finds it necessary to charge a fee for the use of school buildings and facilities by organizations not directly associated with the schools. These fees will be used to defray a portion of the expense caused by increased use of utilities and staff services.
If you have any questions or concerns not addressed on our web page, please feel free to contact us
