MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS

Requests for St. Tammany Parish Public School System building maintenance or repairs shall be made through the building principal/supervisor in charge.

To provide for effective building maintenance and repairs, a logical and orderly means for requesting routine maintenance or repairs shall be established. The procedure for making such requests is as follows:

  1. Requests may originate with individual employees who observe a need for repairs. Employees shall so inform their principal/supervisor in charge.
  2. Requests to central office designated officials shall be made through the local building principal/supervisor in charge on forms prescribed by the Superintendent of Schools or his designee(s).
  3. Local building principals/supervisor in charge shall also submit requests for long-range maintenance repairs to the office of the Superintendent of Schools or his designees.

Routine requests for repairs which do not involve large expenditures shall be submitted directly to the Maintenance Department. They may be in the form of a letter/memo, fax or phone call to the dispatcher.

Emergency requests for repairs involve situations which demand immediate correction for the school/site to continue operating without significant disruption. Principals/supervisors in these situations shall telephone designated officials and request immediate service.
