Facilities Committee Background

Nora Scherer - Chair
James Childs, Sr.
In addition to studying the district facilities and making recommendations to the Board of Education for an ongoing Five Year Facilities Improvement Plan, the members of this committee will also monitor individual building maintenance concerns articulated by the principal and the head custodian of each facility.
This committee must request information about facility concerns in each building, must tour and inspect each building on an annual basis and must monitor the completion of projects targeted to address those concerns.
Stake-holder groups should be represented on this committee and to that end, a diverse group of building principals, teachers, board of education members, parents, business and community representatives will be appointed.
