Glendale schools may be strapped for cash, but they've figured out a way to earn extra income without staging bake sales or car washes.

Glendale High School last year  pocketed $5,200 after seven days of filming of the television show "Criminal Minds."

Filming for that show took place twice on the campus, including in the cafeteria and auditorium, the Glendale News-Press reported.

Three other Glendale campuses provided backdrops for various projects last year, said Alan Reising, the district's director of facility and support operations.

In total, the district generated $40,028 from film projects last year.

The district recently agreed to extend its contract with FilmL.A. Inc., which has coordinated filming projects for the district for the last two years.

"It lets much-needed dollars come in," Reising said.
