Research shows that the condition of the district’s facilities has an impact on both teaching and learning.  Well-maintained facilities improve student achievement, and inadequately maintained facilities have a negative impact on student achievement and staff and student morale.  Based on its recognition that student achievement is the top priority in the Raymondville R-VII School District, the Board directs the superintendent or designee to implement a program of preventive maintenance to protect and improve the district=s facilities.  The program will include:


1.         Regularly scheduled inspections.


2.         Procedures for reporting dangerous conditions.


3.         Procedures for receiving and responding to requests for repairs.  These procedures will include methods for tracking the completion of requested repairs and documenting reasons any repairs are not made.


4.         Annual evaluation of maintenance staffing needs.


The superintendent and the administrative staff will ensure that all professional and support staff know and follow the proper procedures for the maintenance of school property.


Annual budget recommendations by the superintendent shall include adequate allocations for maintenance of district facilities.
