Welcome to Maintenance!

  • We provide routine, preventive and corrective maintenance to the over 6.5 million square feet of OKCPS property, spread over 136 square miles and all district sites. The Maintenance department is comprised of two work units, General Mechanical Services and Technical Maintenance Services.

    General Mechanical Services

    • Designed to provide each school with on-site maintenance support.
    • Organized into 4 geographic areas for Maintenance: North, South, East and West.
    • Each Zone is served by a team of 12 to 16 Maintenance Mechanics.
    • Mechanics' familiarity with their sites is designed to not only increase their familiarity with buildings and site specific issues, but to allow them to become true members of a school’s community who are invested in daily operations and an advocate for the needs of the site.
    • Mechanics work closely with site administrators and well as the Maintenance Administrators. While the large tasks they complete are immediately noticeable, the seemingly small details are just as important.
    • Mechanics perform daily rounds to ensure that their sites are in good working order.
