A school plant should be the physical
expression of the educational philosophy of its planners and the
community. It services, and should enhance the environment in which
educational objectives will be achieved.
The Department of Building and Grounds is charged with the responsibility for the operation, maintenance and protection of school district property. This responsibility encompasses 1,340,000 square feet of buildings and 225 acres of grounds.
Each day, 5700 of our children enter five elementary and five secondary buildings and 1500 adult students enter two adult centers.
Building and Grounds personnel will supply services including general housekeeping, security functions, assisting teaching staff and others with equipment or supplies, maintaining heating and air conditioning systems, care of grounds, repairs to the buildings, and other duties that are designed to provide a pleasant, healthful and safe environment for children and adults.
