Following an outcry from extracurricular sports groups and community organizations, South Fayette school directors Tuesday night agreed to re-evaluate the district's schedule of fees for using the gym, auditorium, sports fields and other school facilities.
Board members voted 8-0 to suspend the facility fee schedule -- developed by administrators and board members and adopted last month -- and to temporarily reinstate the previous guidelines.
About 35 people attended the board meeting to protest the fee schedule, saying it was unclear, unfair and unaffordable.
"I feel like you're picking on the little guys now," said Bob Antoszewski, president of the Lady Lions recreational basketball program.
The district plans to form a new committee, including members of the public, to reconsider the issue. Residents interested in joining the committee may e-mail Superintendent Bille Rondinelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
