The NYC Department of Education provides a safe, clean and comfortable environment that is conducive for educating and nurturing our children. The DOE provides comprehensive maintenance, repair, and safe operation of approximately 130 million square feet of floor space in the 1,300 buildings throughout the five boroughs of the City of New York.
Each school building has an onsite Custodial Engineer, along with a team of fire-persons, handy-persons and cleaners responsible for sanitization, garbage disposal, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, carpentry, painting, minor repairs and all other aspects of building maintenance. These teams are assisted by a group of mobile skilled trades mechanics who tackle complex work beyond the scope of building-based staff.
If you have any questions or concerns related to your building’s maintenance or cleanliness, contact your school.
