On occasion, patrons ask what has been done to the elementary facilities to keep them up and in good functioning order; usually followed by asking what the anticipated maintenance needs will be in the near future. These are great questions. The attachments below list completed work and costs over the last 20 years and projected maintenance expenditures for the next ten years.
Our Director of Maintenance with assistance from the architect developed the projected maintenance schedule. It reflects either preventative maintenance based on the age of our systems or updating to more energy efficient systems.
One could make an argument that existing systems could be kept in place until they were no longer able to be repaired, and then replace them. If we intend to stay in the buildings more than ten years, updating the systems and gaining the benefits makes more sense. This preventative process alleviates issues that could put students in danger or cause missed instructional time.
Keep in mind that scheduled work to the buildings does not change the status quo. The multipurpose room and hallways are still not air conditioned, classroom space does not increase, no gyms are added, etc.
