Welcome to Facilities Management

MISSION STATEMENT

Facilities Management is committed to the timely repair, maintenance and cleanliness of Washoe County School District facilities while sustaining regulatory mandates that assist the WCSD in providing a safe, healthy and comfortable learning environment that supports student achievement. In addition, Facilities Management provides the services essential for the planning, design, construction, restoration, and revitalization of all Washoe County School District facilities in alignment with “Envision WCSD 2015” in order to ensure that all students are provided a safe, healthy and comfortable learning environment conducive to academic performance improvements delivered in a safe, non-intrusive, transparent, effective, well communicated and efficient manner. AB 46: School Capital Needs Initiative.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

 
The Facilities Management 2012-13 Department Plan was presented to the Board of Trustees on January 14, 2014 and included the Facilities Management Council of the Great City Schools Report.
 
On Nov. 12, 2013 the WCSD's school capital needs initiative was defeated when the Washoe Board of Commissioners decided not to move forward with the proposal. Without this stable funding source for critical capital needs, WCSD will be re-considering projects that had already been approved by the Board of Trustees. We will continue to work with our community to find a way to sufficiently fund school facilities going forward.
