Maintenance and Operations

Welcome to the MOT Department!   We take pride in our commitment to a high-quality, safe environment that contribute to the success of our students and staff.

We support student achievement by providing excellent quality services with integrity and pride, maintaining school facilities in a clean, safe, healthy learning environment and providing safe, efficient, and timely transportation.  All of these qualities enhance the student's ability to learn and excel.  Our goal is to provide support for all students, staff, and parents; supporting academic success and community pride. 

We are responsible for the maintenance and repair of all our facilities, daily cleaning, community use, remodeling, bus transportation, sports field preparation, communication systems, and safety systems.

With hundreds of classrooms on 172 acres of land with facilities at more than 10 school sites, operations facilities and administrative offices, this department keeps everything running.


“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.”
