There is a maintenance man assigned to each school in the Huntsville School District. His primary
responsibility is the campus he is assigned to. He may be asked to work other places throughtout the
school year if a need arises, such as graduations, storm damage to another campus, etc.

You answer directly to the principal of the school you are assigned to. Any and all purchases must
first be approved by that principal.

On every school campus a space has evolved over the years where maintenance equipment is kept.
There is also a District Maintenance Shop located on the Middle School campus.

Each school needs to build up an inventory of needed everyday equipment, such as basic hand tools,
push lawnmowers, weed eaters, etc. Larger tools such as table saws, chain saws and welders, are
stored at the District Maintenance Shop. Whenever you use any of the District equipment, take it
back to the shop when you are finished with it.

All maintenance men in the Huntsville School District are utilized to maintain the school grounds, and
the mechanical trades of plumbing, carpentry, and electrical work. We try to maintain everything in
house that we can. Outside companies are only called when necessary.

position. Job responsibilites include:

   8.     Serve as a runner for parts and equipment as needed from the surrounding area vendors.

The maintenance/custodial program in the Huntsville School District is on its way up and it will
continue to gain momentum with support from the Board of Education and the attention it is now
