The Operations Department consists of four departments working together to achieve District goals and to fulfill the Mission Statement. Those departments include: Housekeeping Services, Maintenance, Grounds, and Security and are under the direction of Alyce Swan, Facilities Supervisor.
Housekeeping Services handle all aspects of daily cleaning and classroom preparedness. The cleaning philosophy is “cleaning for health”. RSU 21 is expanding their use of “Green” cleaning products for the health and safety of all. A book of standards has been developed and is used as a guideline and is the protocol in all cleaning aspects.
The Maintenance Department consists of five employees, each with a specialized trade: plumbing/heating, carpentry and cabinetry, HVAC mechanics, etc. They handle all indoor and outdoor maintenance, preventive and routine, from roof to foundation.
The Grounds Department has three employees. Their responsibilities include field preparation for all athletic events for two seasons (fall and spring). They are also completely responsible for all lawn care, parking lots, playgrounds and all wooded areas owned by RSU 21. They also plow and sand all district driveways and parking lots during the winter months.
The Security Department has one full-time employee; the School Resource Officer acts as backup when needed. Security personnel are responsible for tracking and distribution of all keys, security codes and alarm systems. A strong working knowledge of each building and its operating systems is an important role as they are the first responders in emergencies.
The Operations Department is a knowledgeable group who strives to make RSU 21 an exceptional environment for learning and is proud of the district’s buildings and grounds.
