Maintaining Perspective in the Maintenance Department
Kennedy, Mike
American School & University, v83 n10 p32-35 Jun 2011
Operating facilities more efficiently is always a worthwhile goal, but when education budgets are shrinking, the quest for efficiency becomes a necessity. In the funding climate that schools and universities find themselves, building managers will be fortunate to hang on to the budget they have, let alone receive the resources they need to address short- and long-term school maintenance requirements. Economic forecasts indicate that education funding is not likely to return to pre-recession levels in the next year or two. That means the only avenue for most school maintenance and operations staff to keep facilities in good condition is to try to stretch their dollars and do more with less. And in some cases, until more money is available, school maintenance staffs might be forced in the short term to do less.
