Maintenance & Plant Operations

Division of Support Operations
Maintenance & Plant Operations


The Maintenance and Plant Operations Department is funded by the School Board to accomplish specified maintenance and repair of the existing district facilities throughout the county in support of the educational mission. To best accomplish the District’s goals, the Department is aligned into six service areas. These include: (1) Fire/ Life Safety, (2) Building Services (3) Centralized Services, (4) Grounds Section, (5) Mechanical Section (HVAC) and (6) Zone Team Sections. It is through this alignment and on-going communications with the schools that we provide support services to the students of Palm Beach County.



Maintenance and Plant Operations strives to provide an effective, efficient, respectful and customer friendly workforce promoting a student first learning environment.
