Custodial Services
The District will not provide custodial services for charter schools housed in District facilities.  Charter schools must arrange for their own custodial services.
 
Maintenance Services
The District provides maintenance services for charter schools housed in District facilities. Our Maintenance Services team is responsible for the operation and repair of real property facilities and systems.  The team handles routine restricted maintenance, preventive maintenance, and deferred maintenance projects.  Facilities and systems covered by their work includes:
  • power distribution
  • lighting
  • heating/ventilating/air conditioning
  • building envelope
  • walls/floors/ceilings
  • doors and locks
  • swimming pools
  • asphalt and concrete walkways, quads, parking lots
  • fencing and gates
  • stadium bleachers
  • elevators/lifts/dumbwaiters
  • fire alarm systems
  • fire sprinkler systems
  • fire suppression systems (ansul, halon, FM22, etc.)
  • security / intrusion / burglar alarm systems
  • low voltage cabling
Our first priority is to maintain - to keep what currently exists in operating condition.  Within that first priority, safety and security concerns are handled as promptly as possible, followed by repairs to facilities and systems that affect the most people.  All things being equal, we treat requests for service on a first come first served basis.  
 
Our second priority is what we call "adds/moves/changes".  Requests for modifications are handled only when there is no backlog of repairs.  Requests for modifications can be fulfilled faster if there are associated funds to pay for the work to be completed by outside vendors or our staff on overtime.  Without associated requester-based funding, requests for modifications may take weeks or months to be fulfilled.
 
For more information, contact Kathy Lanford, Assistant Director of Facilities Operations, lanfordk@esuhsd.org, 408.347.5108.
 
Technology Services
The District can provide the following services at no charge:
  • full telephony and data services at 40 Mb

A charter school can elect self-provision of telephony and data services.  Installation of services must be coordinated and approved by our Technology Director.

Tenant Improvements
The District provides planning, design and construction services for charter schools housed in District facilities. Our Planning and Construction Services team is responsible for implementing and/or overseeing improvements to real property facilities and systems.

Regardless of whether a tenant improvements is managed by the District or by the charter school, all tenant improvements must be approved by our Facilities Director.
