Elk Grove Unified School District

In the several years leading up to the Great Recession of 2008, the Elk Grove Unified School District was the second-fastest growing school district in California, and had to build several high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools to keep up with population growth in its service area. During that time period, RMM actively assisted the District with various environmental documents, including EIRs for joint high school/middle school complexes and mitigated negative declarations for elementary schools. In doing this work, RMM had to apply not only general CEQA principles, but also provisions of CEQA and the Education Code specific to school siting issues.
