The mission of the Facilities Department is to support the mission and vision of the Watertown school district by providing a safe, clean and secure learning/working environment. We also provide the community with a clean, safe and secure venue for recreation and entertainment activities. This mission in turn provides for the proper maintenance of the school facilities which protects the capital investment of the community.
The Facilities Department is responsible for managing all of the custodial and maintenance services for the Board of Education’s buildings with staffing to include 30 custodians, 5 maintainers and 1 pool technician covering approximately 640,000 square feet of building space located on approximately 100 acres. Oversight of the Facilities Department is carried out by the Director of Facilities.
The Facilities Department continually maintains operations through cost effective solutions, forward thinking maintenance planning and customer service levels. Our goals and priorities directly support the district goals and priorities of the district to include: safety and security, HVAC, building maintenance and repair, CIP management, custodial services, grounds keeping, minor construction and repairs and facilities usage.
