Project Updates

  • Feb. 2, 2021 – While students were learning from home, SSD Facilities and Operations used the time to cross off some items on the District’s to-do list. Many updates have taken place in recent months. Taking advantage of the limited number of people in the buildings, the Facilities and Operations team made sure the buildings were in top condition for the return of students at the start of second semester.

    SSD Facilities and Operations is responsible for 1.2 million square feet of building space under roof and 186 acres of grounds. Districtwide updates have included roofing analysis, concrete replacement and updates, grounds projects, and ongoing maintenance and reporting for bio-detention, retention basins, and rain gardens.
