Welcome to the School District of Philadelphia's Facilities Maintenance and Operations Department. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and conducive learning environment for students, faculty and the community. Schools which are well maintained, in good repair, clean and not overcrowded enable students to excel and achieve at higher levels. Facilities works with other departments such as Design & Construction and Information Technology to ensure that students are provided with the most modern and technologically advanced learning environment available. The exterior grounds are also an important factor in the educational environment. Facilities provides landscaping and grounds maintenance to provide “curb appeal” for the students, parents and surrounding neighborhood. Most importantly, Facilities strives to accomplish these goals with the lowest financial impact, conserve energy, and constantly pursue savings to ensure the maximum amount of funding is available for the education of our children.
