The Support Operations Department is led by the Chief Operating Officer and supports the division in achieving the following goals:
- Facilities and the Learning Environment: ACPS will provide optimal and equitable learning environments.
- Health and Wellness: ACPS will promote efforts to enable students to be healthy and ready to learn.
These goals are achieved through the collaborative efforts of Educational Facilities, Pupil Transportation, School Nutrition Services and Safety and Security.
The Department of Educational Facilities manages the Capital Improvement Program budget. The construction of new buildings, as well as the renovation and modernization of existing buildings is accomplished through this budget.
The operations and maintenance program oversees the daily functioning of all ACPS facilities. This includes custodial, maintenance, and lease services, as well as environmental controls within the buildings. Items that fall in this area include painting of facilities, landscaping, and building services.
The health and safety program oversees the division’s security services, emergency management, and liability insurance services.
