The District 67 and 115 Buildings and Grounds Department is charged with providing a safe, comfortable, and clean environment for students to learn and our staff to work.
The Buildings and Grounds Department is responsible for all five District 67 and 115 school buildings as well as the West Campus Administrative Center. Buildings and Grounds is responsible for the overall physical condition of the facilities and the Director works closely with the Boards of Education, building principals, and the District Architect of Record to determine and prioritize building needs, healthy and safety requirements, and capital projects. Maintenance repairs are typically accomplished by District custodians and maintenance staff, while larger projects are completed by outside contractors.
Buildings and Grounds is also responsible for working with the Regional Office of Education in completing all health, life and safety inspections checklists, energy management and conservation issues, indoor air quality, and facility usage.
Lake Forest School District 67 and Lake Forest Community High School District 115 practice Integrated Pest Management, a program that combines preventative techniques, non-chemical pest control methods, and the appropriate use of pesticides with a preference for products that are least harmful to human health and the environment. The term “pesticide” includes insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, and fungicides.
The School Districts maintain a registry of people who wish to be notified prior to pesticide applications. To be included in this registry, please contact Daniel Mortensen, Director of Buildings and Grounds, firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will be notified prior to the use of pesticides. Please specify if you want to be contacted by phone or email.
