Highland Central School District Facilities Management
Office of Operations and Maintenance
Peter Miller, Director
Jennifer Puleo, Assistant
The Operations & Maintenance Department of The Highland Central School District is staffed by 29 highly dedicated and experienced full and part time personnel. The department is responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of over 300,000 square feet of facilities and over 100 acres of athletic fields and grounds. For the most part, this work is done in house by district custodial and maintenance staff. A member of that staff remains on duty in the building until 11pm most weeknights, and on weekends as needed, in order to accommodate use of the facility for school-related and community activities by outside organizations, such as The PTA, Athletic Teams, and other community groups.
The Operations and Maintenance personnel also play a critical role in the District’s construction projects, and works closely with the Superintendent, the Business Office, the Architects, and the Districts’ Construction Representative to insure that construction proceeds in accordance with the approved design, meets stringent standards of quality, and is in compliance with all applicable state and federal regulations.
