Custodial & Grounds

Department Showcase - Custodial and Grounds


Tonight we are adding a new showcase to our monthly meetings. This is a department showcase to highlight the teams across the district who are instrumental to the success of our school operations. 


First to be spotlighted are our custodial services and grounds crew teams. Although their roles are mostly behind-the-scenes, their contributions to the Big Red Community are huge. This group of men and women have worked especially hard this summer preparing our facilities for the new school year. 

The custodial staff, led by Maria Garcia, includes 131 employees. They are responsible for 63 buildings across the district which includes cleaning more than 2.2 million square feet.


The grounds crew, led by Patrick Crosby, consists of 14 employees who are split into four crews — North Crew, South Crew, Athletic Crew and Landscape Crew. These crews are responsible for almost 324 acres of turf. The team also includes a licensed integrated pest management specialist and an irrigation technician.

We want to say thank you to these employees for your hard work and dedication to keeping our facilities clean and well-kept so we’re able to provide exceptional learning experiences for our almost 14,000 students. We appreciate each of you.
