Maintenance & Grounds Services

Mission & Vision

The Maintenance & Operations Department is responsible for preserving every building within the Franklin-McKinley School District.  The goal of the District is to provide an effective educational program for its students.  We in Maintenance & Operations work diligently to provide a level of service that contributes to the overall educational program.  Students are more effective learners in a clean, safe school environment.  It is our sincere mission to positively affect the morale of students, staff and parents with our continued efforts to provide the cleanest and safest learning environment.

The Maintenance & Operations Department coordinates and manages the District's maintenance and repair of school buildings, their associated environmental systems such as heating or cooling plants, and surrounding landscaped grounds and play fields. Maintenance and Operations also oversees the deferred maintenance of modernization projects with site administrators.

The ultimate goal of the Maintenance Department is to provide a clean, orderly, safe, cost-effective, and instructionally supportive school environment that contributes to the school district’s mission of educating our children to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional demands of the 21st century.

Safety, operations and risk management also falls under the purview of Maintenance and Operations, with the goal of providing a safe and healthy environment for the approximately 6,000+ students and staff of the Franklin-McKinley School District. This mission is supported through periodic inspections of existing district facilities, and careful review of all safety and emergency preparedness plans to ensure a school environment that promotes powerful teaching and learning.
