District Support Operations
We believe school buildings should use less energy, demonstrate sound environmental practices and serve as fundamental tools for learning.
The Maintenance Department is responsible for the maintenance of buildings and grounds for the Kenton County School System. Responsibilities of this department are as follows but not limited to:
• Supervises and repairs the district’s building and grounds.
• Maintains a current inventory of equipment and supplies.
• Establishes an efficient and effective system of routine maintenance.
• Promotes high standards of safety and good housekeeping methods in all work-connected areas.
• Completes all tasks in shortest time possible.
• Performs other assigned duties as may be necessary.
The facilities/maintenance department for Kenton County Schools are committed to providing a safe, clean, inviting and energy efficient student learning facilities. In order to create a collaborative culture, we must work with the staff at each school to maintain student learning facilities in a safe, inviting and energy efficient manner. In order to ensure student learning we must work around student activities such as testing to maintain the facilities while not disturbing student learning.

Energy management is a critical component of the Kenton County School District’s mission and vision to prepare students for the global workplace and market. The District’s unique concept of energy management goes beyond just the physical elements of the buildings and recognizes the need to develop a future labor force capable of meeting the anticipated demand for “green collar” jobs over the next twenty years. Our national award-winning energy management approach has propelled the Kenton County School District into the upper echelon of environmental leadership. In partnership with ENERGY STAR, KEEPS, and KY NEED our 18 schools analyze, track, and benchmark energy performance in order to reduce energy consumption by staff, students, and the public.
The Kenton County School District System of Excellence extends beyond the classroom. The Facilities Department not only builds and maintains school buildings, it strives to conserve energy, protect the environment and develop students who have a lifelong commitment to sustainability and sound environmental practices.
