Gates Chili Facilities and Security
Work together to provide a clean, safe, secure, and aesthetically-pleasing environment to enhance the educational and community experience, exceeding all expectations and in support of the district's mission and values.
Within the Facilities Department, there are maintenance and custodial teams, who maintain 824,651 square feet of facilities at 10 buildings, and the grounds team, who maintain 230 acres of property, 24 athletic fields, an athletic stadium, a track, nine playgrounds at the elementary schools and 12 tennis courts. We maintain a highly-trained staff, including specialized trade skills such as electrical, mechanical, plumbing, mechanics, painters, and carpenters to assure that all structural and mechanical areas of the buildings are in good working condition.
The Facilities Department also includes the security team, who are highly qualified and required to meet the civil service testing requirements. All visitors to our schools must show photo identification and be issued an automatic expiring visitor badge. Visitors names are entered into a computer system for a security background check. The district utilizes proximity door card readers for staff access to all buildings. Security staff monitors the safety and security of our facilities.
