Maintenance Plan


School districts are required to submit a copy of their written maintenance plan along with Form A24M when applying for School Building Aid. The Department of Education has developed a model plan which may be adopted and modified by individual school districts. Districts may submit plans using their own formats as long as the requirements of RSA 198:15-b are met. The model plan was developed for a district which does not utilize a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS). Implementation of a CMMS is strongly encouraged. The size of the written plan for a district that utilizes a CMMS can be much smaller than the model plan.

Why Maintenance is Important

  • Broken equipment cannot perform its intended function.
  • Broken or worn items can be a safety hazard and a liability.
  • Classroom temperature, lighting, acoustics, and air quality affect student and teacher performance.
  • Clean, healthy buildings reduce absenteeism among students and staff.
  • Community expects it to be done.
  • First impressions matter.
  • Fixing small problems costs less than waiting until they become big problems.
  • It costs less to maintain your school than it will cost if you don't.
  • It"s the right thing to do.
  • Well maintained equipment operates more efficiently and costs less to operate.
