Maintenance Survey Report for Public School Buildings.
Maryland State Interagency Committee on School Construction, Baltimore.
Proper maintenance is necessary for all public school facilities. In Maryland, both the Board of Public Works and the Interagency Committee on Public School Construction (IAC) work to improve public school maintenance. Since 1980 the IAC has conducted a survey of selected Maryland schools to assess the quality of local maintenance programs in 106 school facilities that received State Public School Construction Program funding. This report summarizes the findings of an evaluation that assessed the quality of local maintenance programs in approximately 100 Maryland public school facilities. Thirty-four systems and components within each school were surveyed and used to generate an overall rating for the school. Of the 1,565 surveys conducted since 1980, 88 percent earned ratings of"superior/very good" and "good." Action is being taken to improve existing conditions in schools that received "fair" ratings. No schools received a "poor" rating during 1995. Data for 1980-95 and school-by-school ratings for 1995 are also provided. (LMI)
