Facilities Operations & Transportation
Welcome to the Facilities Operations and Transportation Services website.  The operations department is responsible for the physical operation of district owned property and grounds.  This includes the Central Office (“B” School), Fleet Operations Garage, High/Middle School Complex, and Norwood Elementary School.
The Facilities Operations is responsible for all custodial, maintenance, and grounds services within the district.  Our staff members work hard to keep the facilities looking great and safe for the daily use by students, staff, and visitors.
Facilities Operations is also responsible for all facility operations including boilers, chillers, electrical systems, plumbing systems, security and fire protection systems, kitchen equipment, energy usage, and elevator operations.  The department is also responsible for managing and overseeing the districts emergency operations plans.
Transportation Services is responsible for providing safe and efficient transportation of district students.  The District operates eleven 72-passenger school buses, four handicap buses, one school van, a food service truck, and one grounds pickup truck.  On a daily basis, our fleet drivers provide transportation to approximately 600 students logging approximately 590 miles per day on nine routes as well as transporting students on extracurricular field trips.  In 2021, the department implemented the use of routing software to further increase efficiency in the routing process and field trip management.
The district has nine regular fleet drivers and two substitutes.  We also employ a full time vehicle mechanic who performs all maintenance of district owned vehicles ensuring safe and efficient operation.
