What Makes Up the Department
The Maintenance Department consists of five shops: Carpentry, General Maintenance, Plumbing, HVAC and Electrical.
The Contracted Services Department oversees: Custodial, Mowing, Pest Control, Fire Extinguishers, and Gym Floor Refinishing and Sanding.
In July 2017, WCS and Trane began implementation of a broad range of energy-saving infrastructure improvements with a goal of comfortable and energy-efficient learning environment for everyone in the district. The energy saving resulting from these upgrades are financially guaranteed by Trane over a contract term of 15 years.
The buildings are conditioned to satisfy normal comfort requirements of occupants which should be established with due consideration for energy conservation. The following operational parameters were collaboratively agreed upon by WCS and Trane set for occupied and unoccupied times: 68 degrees (occupied) to 60 degrees (unoccupied) in heating mode and 74 degrees (occupied) to 80 degrees (unoccupied) in cooling mode.
Indoor Air Quality
The Maintenance Department holds the health and well-being of WCS students and teachers in the highest regard. The department maintains and monitors the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning in the district assuring Indoor Air Quality is held at the highest standard.
