Welcome to the Facilities Department. Our goal is to provide the best environment for learning with clean and well maintained buildings. Although our department is small, consisting of a director and two maintenance personnel, we perform all the repair work on eight buildings, consisting of 836,000 square feet. Russ Neiman and Josh Tardiff are always on the go with a long work list, which we manage using a maintenance program called, "School Dude." We use a team of twenty-four custodians from Benchmark cleaning company for all of our custodial cleaning, event set up and tear downs, snow removal, and many more behind the scenes work that comes up.
By now if you have visited our schools this year, you have seen some of the changes we did over the summer. There are new street signs at the Dike/Newell School and Fisher/Mitchell School. The summer paint crew was very busy this year, by getting 32 classrooms and 4 hallways paint out in a 5-week time frame. Most maintenance work happened at Fisher/Mitchell School where we had a pipe in the floor fail and had to dig it up. We also did a overhaul to the front office area as well as the front of the building got some new landscaping.
