What We Do
The Office of Buildings and Grounds is responsible for maintenance and cleaning of the District's seven school buildings and their surrounding grounds and fields. For the most part, this work is done in-house by District custodial and maintenance staff, but is outsourced when appropriate. Each building has a head custodian on-site, assisted by a custodial staff. A member of that staff remains on duty in the building until 11 pm most weeknights and on weekends as needed, in order to accommodate use of the facility for school-related and community activities by outside organizations such as the PT Council and the Recreation Department.
Community groups wishing to book District facilities should call the Buildings and Grounds Office (914-721-2442) to inquire about availability, applicable fees, and to obtain an application form.
Buildings and Grounds also plays a critical role in the District's construction projects, and works closely with the Business office, the architects and the owners' construction representative to insure that construction proceeds in accordance with the approved design, meets stringent standards of quality, and is in compliance with all applicable state and federal regulations.
