Welcome to the Maintenance & Operations Department. My name is Kelly Gregg, Director of the Department, and I sincerely appreciate your visit to our School District. We are a small Maintenance & Operations team with a large area to cover within North Franklin School District.

Provide for the needs of the physical plant and keep the school safe, comfortable and environmentally conducive to aid in a good learning process.
We believe that maintenance and custodial are an important part of the public education process, just as all the other support services are. The physical characteristics of a school facility are looked upon by the community, administration, teachers, coaches, maintenance and custodial and any one else who has contact with North Franklin School District, as something to be proud of.
We comprehend the utmost importance of realizing the basic definition of “Cost of Ownership,” which we believe will generally include not only the planning, design and construction, but also maintenance, repairs, replacements, alterations and normal operations such as heating, cooling and lighting, as well as ultimate disposal. These operating costs are recognized as being long-term costs to the owner.
With having the understanding of “Cost of Ownership,” we base a lot of our decisions on trying to provide the district with the best possible environment for the kids, and we keep in mind the long term cost or savings when the decisions are being made. Whether it be a new piece of equipment or to update something, we need to understand the importance of providing the equipment necessary to perform the work in a safe, efficient and productive manner. This in turn saves the district problems and money in the long term.
