     Facilities Department 
     
    The Atlanta Public Schools Facilities Services Department supports the District to ensure that instructional buildings are conducive to learning and are properly maintained. Facilities continues to work to direct our resources to remove facilities related issues from the focus of instructional personnel. We remain steadfast in seeking out methods that will not only improve construction and maintenance services, but also provide these services in a cost effective and efficient manner. As we complete capital and maintenance projects, we work to strengthen our efforts on maintaining and maximizing the useful life of our capital assets. The focus of all of our labors remains on establishing and maintaining excellence in our facilities.
    The following represents the organizational structure of the Facilities Services Department.
