$200,000 for High School Graduation

Updated: Apr 3, 2018



The cost of the Elk Grove Unified School District’s high school graduation ceremonies nearly doubled this year – reaching $195,293 – after the district moved the events from the Sleep Train Arena to the Golden 1 Center. Both venues are in the Sacramento area, outside the Elk Grove city limits.


The district gave six free tickets to each of the 4,067 graduates, but increased the price of each additional ticket from $7 to $10. (Source: The Sacramento Bee, July 25.)
