The Facilities Management program provides comprehensive custodial and maintenance services to all LDoE facilities, which includes two school campuses, two Head Start campuses, and all administrative and related buildings. Facilities Management provides cross-training of personnel, work experience for students and emergency response services, including major community crises.
Operation and Maintenance (O&M) is divided into three categories:
- Preventive Scheduled Maintenance
- Unscheduled Maintenance
Is the day-to-day services that include custodial services, fire protection (response and inspection), daily monitoring of utility systems and services and refuse collection. Operation and maintenance is performed by Facilities personnel who are either certified or licensed in one or more of the trade field.
Preventive Scheduled Maintenance
Is the required routine maintenance that ensures that the facilities are maintained and in working condition. Inspections of all facility components are conducted routinely to assure proper operation and condition, and to identify more extensive replacement or repair needs.
Is the correction of unforeseen problems or deficiencies that must take priority over routine maintenance and must be corrected as soon as possible.
