  • Engineering and maintenance advice to school administrators concerning school equipment and operation
  • Project management services for new school construction and renovation
  • Management of security services
  • Energy Conservation
  • Safety and Environmental Programs

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.
