Maintenance and Operations Department
Michael Benzien Lisa Caldira
The Maintenance department is responsible for maintenance and operations in the district including grounds, custodial and HVAC.
Mission Statement: The purpose of the Maintenance and Operations Department is to provide a clean, healthy, and safe teaching environment. Studies have found that the achievement of students is improved from 9 to 14 percent if we provide a clean and well-maintained building for teachers to teach in. We must evaluate all we do in the Maintenance Department on the basis that this service we provide enhances a student's ability to learn. If we realize that we are all part of the educational team of the district, we see our assigned tasks as an opportunity, not more work. The largest expense to the district is the cost to replace facilities. It is the responsibility of the Maintenance Department to maintain the facilities and ensure we are able to meet the student's needs.
