Douglas County School District property, including grounds, buildings and other facilities, represents a major investment of public money, and as such shall be efficiently utilized, economically managed and properly maintained in accordance with governing federal, state and local laws and applicable District policies and regulations.
In accordance with established administrative guidelines and procedures, all modifications, additions, and/or improvements to District buildings or grounds must be coordinated through the school Principal and approved by the Operations and Maintenance Department.
If such a process is not followed, improvements could unintentionally void existing warranties, impact the building’s ventilation system, create electrical shortages or overloads, create federal compliance issues or violate current building codes.
The Community Service/Facility Improvement Process ensures improvements are safe and compliant with governing codes and standards. It remains the District’s mission to provide safe and adequate space and services which support student learning in a cost effective manner.
