We oversee the entire district’s preventative and corrective maintenance, improvements, renovations, long-range planning, and day-to-day building operations including electrical, HVAC and plumbing needs, snow and ice removal, mowing, setup for events and respond to after hour’s emergencies. In addition to the grounds keeping for all seven school buildings, we also handle all district athletic fields.
