Facilities and grounds

The facilities department has a staff of dedicated employees who provide services to five schools. Our goal is to provide safe, well-maintained schools for students, parents, faculty, support staff and the community. 

The department is currently developing District's Master Plan and Deferred Maintenance program to ensure a proactive, systematic approach in facility management. 

Quarterly reports will be provided to Board of Trustees to report on the progress of completion of the Deferred Maintenance program.
