The Division of Maintenance of the Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools (MCPS) is responsible for the maintenance and repair of all buildings, equipment, grounds, and facilities. School Plant Operations is not an administrative unit, but a function which includes the operation of plant equipment and custodial and housekeeping services. After an introduction, Part II of the report describes the evaluation of the Division of Maintenance, focusing on costs and budget; decentralization; supplies and equipment; staffing; management, supervision and control; planning and scheduling; delivery of services; and staff stability and training. Part III describes the evaluation of School Plant Operations, focusing on costs and budget; operations staffing; management, supervision and control; planning and scheduling; delivery of custodial services; supplies and equipment; and staff stability and training. A separate section is devoted to Energy Management, focusing on the MCPS energy program, energy auditing, computer control, and the use of natural gas. The final sections provide an overview of Central Management, and a discussion of alternatives for the delivery of service. (Author/BW)
