Buildings & Grounds
Creating a safe environment conducive to learning
Good building environments result in greater learning potential. Studies have linked the impact of school building conditions on student productivity and performance. Higher test scores can result when students are taught in an environment free of excessive noise with proper indoor air quality, appropriate lighting levels, and comfortable thermal conditions.
The Buildings and Grounds Department of Mequon-Thiensville School District is committed to providing the best environment possible for learning to take place. We are responsible for a wide range of facility services including the day-to-day operation and maintenance of 7 buildings, over 950,000 sq. ft, and over 170 acres of grounds. Our department has an outstanding staff that demonstrates a commitment to "better facilities equal better education."
Our goal is to provide a safe, clean, comfortable, functional and attractive environment for the community. We are trusted to ensure the taxpayer funds are used efficiently while providing a good return on each investment. We will, without losing focus on the students, maintain a business approach that meets the most-respected business practices.
