Policy 802.01: Maintenance Schedule

Original Adopted Date: 7/1/1985 | Last Reviewed Date: 6/19/2023

The school district buildings and sites, including the grounds, buildings and equipment, will be kept clean and in good repair.  Employees should notify the building principal when something is in need of repair or removal, including graffiti.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to maintain the school district buildings and sites.  As part of this responsibility, a maintenance schedule is created and adhered to in compliance with this policy.

NOTE:  The sentence on graffiti is necessary because of the liability a school district could incur in a case involving harassment.  The continued presence of graffiti could expose the school district to liability.  It is recommended that school districts implement a procedure to discourage, report and remove graffiti in a timely manner.
