Answer: During the 2009-10 school year, the fitness center took in just under $8,000. That same year, it cost the district about $9,500 to keep it open for community use.
The fitness center does not always generate a net loss. The first year it was open, it generated a profit. The fitness center is designed to be a self-sustaining program, but its revenues are dependent on membership.
Each year, Mr. Zumbolo and I look at a cost-benefit analysis of running the fitness center and make adjustments accordingly. For instance, we cut back community hours this year based on member usage.
