Facilities and Operations

The Francis Howell School District Facilities and Operations Department works to keep buildings operating smoothly and efficiently. The Facilities and Operations Department manages the construction, maintenance, and scheduling of all of the District’s schools and facilities. Projects range from basic lighting upgrades to building renovations to the more complex planning and construction of a whole new school. The Department also coordinates the use of our classrooms, commons, and recreational facilities for District and community uses. Above all, our mission is to ensure that our schools and facilities keep running safely and smoothly.

Use of Facilities
Francis Howell school buildings and other facilities are available for community use according to policies established by the Board of Education and in compliance with state law. To manage requests and expenses related to facility use, we have established procedures to request use of a facility, to establish priority for use, to set fees, and to ensure that District facilities are used appropriately.

The Board of Education and the Francis Howell School District encourage our buildings to be true community resources. Organizations may use school facilities, as long as appropriate guidelines and regulations are followed.

To reserve a District facility, please review the guidelines, application, and fee schedule links on the left.
