Our Facility Services team, comprised of approximately 60 skilled tradespeople, services British Columbia's largest geographical school district area spanning as far North as Mackenzie and East to Valemount. We ensure that all of School District 57 facilities are maintained to district standards and regulatory requirements.

These functions are accomplished through the combined efforts of a wide network of administrators and support staff that perform specific functions as designated by the superintendent in implementing policies established by the Board of School Trustees.
Our general objective is to systematically plan and schedule facility maintenance to safeguard our capital investments, extend the useful life of the facilities, promote health and safety, and provide an appropriate environment for all that utilize the facilities.
