The District has a Storm Water management program that complies with the California Regional Water Quality Control Board. The Storm Water Management Program seeks to reduce the dumping of water from school sites into streams, lakes and rivers within the District. For more information, see the EGUSD Storm Water Post-Construction Standards Manual and the Stormwater Best Management Practice Handbook from the California Stormwater Quality Association.
During the school year, a team of 15-17 students prepare to compete in Science Olympiad tournaments held on the local, state, and national levels. These interscholastic competitions consist of a series of 40 individual and team events that encourage learning in biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, problem solving, and technology. Events in the Science Olympiad have been designed to recognize the wide variety of skills that students possess. While some events require knowledge of scientific facts and concepts, others rely on science processes, skills, or applications.
