How often is my air filter replaced?
The district’s HVAC crew replaces all air filters for every classroom on a bi-monthly basis (6 times per year). High-efficiency air filters are used in order to provide a clean and adequately filtered learning environment. Approximately 20,000 air filters per year are replaced at an annual cost of about $60,000.

What happens after a roof leak in my room?
In the event of water intrusion due to a leak in the roof, the following steps are to be taken: wet and/or damaged ceiling tiles will be taken down, effective roofing repairs will be performed (weather permitting, a follow-up visit may be required), a water leakage test will be performed utilizing a water hose and a visual inspection for leaks, damaged ceiling tiles will be replaced with new tiles. It should be noted that the damaged ceiling tiles will not be replaced until an effective roofing repair has been performed and the area above the tiles has been dried and ventilated. This may mean that the tiles will not be replaced for a few days.

What is the SRTS (Service Request Tracking System) and how can I submit a ticket for service?
The SRTS provides a Web based method of requesting Administrative Services within the District. Each department which takes requests for service through the SRTS has a Service Request button on their department web page. You also may click here to submit a ticket for service in Maintenance. Here is a SRTS User Training Guide (PowerPoint Presentation) you can view on how to use the SRTS.
