Facilities and Maintenance

We provide well maintained schools and a safe environment that enhances our student's educational experience. Our departmental areas of responsibility include building and grounds maintenance, custodial operations, management of community use requests, and long range planning and facilities management.

Long Range Facility Planning

The efficient operations and maintenance of CSD properties requires ongoing planning and management. The Long Range Facility Planning process is continuous and in 2017, the superintendent will select a Long Range Facility Master Plan Committee to be charged with the development of a plan to help transform an aging infrastructure and provide more innovative an equitable opportunities for all students. The committee will begin meeting in February and will complete their work in the fall of 2017. The goals and objectives for the committee will be to develop a recommendation for School Board approval that:

  • Supports learning environments that are safe and accessible
  • Inspires innovative learning, accommodates evolving technology, and promotes collaboration among students, staff and community
  • Is cost-effective for the taxpayer, energy efficient, and adaptable for future use by students, staff and the community
  • Complies with the requirements of ORS 195.110

In addition to providing transparency and creating opportunities for community members to guide this important process, the district is committed to balancing the needs of current and future students with its responsibilities to taxpayers.

Our district includes thirteen school locations, the district administration building, and the Western View Center meeting space. Altogether, these locations total 1.2 million square feet.

The average age of our elementary schools is 59 years, Cheldelin Middle School was built in 1967, Linus Pauling was built in 2004, and Crescent Valley High School was built in 1971.
