The Williamson County Schools (WCS) Maintenance Department is a service minded group of 70 men and women focused on providing the students, faculty and staff of our schools with the best learning environment we possibly can. We view it as our job to assure that the facilities where learning, teaching, working, and playing take place are well-maintained, clean, comfortable, and safe.

General Maintenance is responsible for moving, hauling, and delivering materials, equipment and furniture (use of government vehicles not permitted for pick up at residences), repairing fencing, landscaping, mail route, playground safety and maintenance, floor tile and baseboard, ceiling tile, signage, fire caulking, and replacing light bulbs. The General Maintenance shop is pulled from by the other trades to assist in special projects or long term helpers.
The buildings are environmentally conditioned to satisfy normal comfort requirements of occupants, but should be established with due consideration for energy conservation. Current approved temperature ranges for Williamson County Schools are: 67-73 degrees for winter and 70-76 degrees for summer for classrooms and the main office during normal school operation. For common areas such as cafeterias, gymnasiums, and hallways the temperature ranges are 62-68 degrees for winter and 73-79 for summer during normal school operation. Heating and cooling is reduced and/or increased during times when the buildings are not scheduled for use.

Subject: ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR WILLIAMSON COUNTY SCHOOLS (WCS)
This notice is sent to inform all occupants and guests of WCS as to our efforts to comply with National and State regulations related to asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM).
During the late 1980’s and early 1990’s WCS executed an aggressive asbestos abatement program that removed or remediated most of the ACBM in our schools. That program, coupled with the fact that a large number of our schools have been built since 1988 when asbestos building regulations were put in place, has resulted in only a few WCS campuses having some remaining ACBM.
In accordance with the federal EPA regulations (40 CFR 763), and the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986, the triennial reinspection for ACBM has been completed for all buildings owned, leased or otherwise occupied by WCS. This inspection has been conducted by a certified inspector. Material samples have been evaluated by an accredited laboratory. Building materials that contain as little as one percent (1%) asbestos have been identified and made a part of the WCS Asbestos Management Plan.
To-date, our remaining ACBM is in the form of floor tile and/or floor tile adhesive that is located in various areas of:
… as well as in two of our Portable classrooms (one each at Independence HS and Trinity ES.) Additionally, ACBM has been identified in the pipe insulation of the concealed pipe runs in the ceiling and walls of the Central Office Spaces.
This non-friable type of asbestos has been determined to be in good condition, and thus, poses no health concerns. Semi-annual surveys are performed in these facilities to ensure the identified ACBM remains in good condition. These surveys are performed by designated Maintenance Department personnel who are trained to recognize damaged asbestos-containing material, and are certified to conduct operation and maintenance level remediation efforts as may become necessary.
A complete Asbestos Management Plan for the school district is on file at the WCS Maintenance Department. A copy is also available for each of the above listed schools at the schools office. The plan for the Central Office spaces is available in the office of the Director of Facilities & Construction.
