UCPS Facilities Reorganizes
In January 2009, the Maintenance Department and the Facilities, Planning and Construction Department were reorganized and merged into one department - the Facilities Department. The Facilities Department is part of Building Operations and is under the supervision of Dr. Mike Webb, Assistant Superintendent. The duties and tasks of the merged departments have not changed, however, with the reorganization there are now three departments headed by an executive director and three assistant directors (Facilities Organizational Chart).
- Donald S. Hughes, AIA - Executive Director of Facilities
- Danny McManus - Assistant Director of Maintenance
- Steve Kisiah - Assistant Director of Operations and Custodial Services
- David Pope, AIA - Assistant Director of Planning and Construction
The Facilities Departments responsibility is wide reaching. We will provide for the total school building life - from finding and acquiring land, building and renovating a school, keeping it well maintained, and keeping the school clean. Since the 2000 school year, the inventory of schools has almost doubled to house more than 38,000 students in more than 5,000,000 square feet.
The executive director and the assistant directors have many years of experience in their respective roles pertaining to a school facility. Please visit the web pages for each department for more information.
