The MISD has approximately 843 acres of grounds that are maintained by our Grounds Department. Crews and outside contractors perform all district specified landscaping duties such as: planting, mowing, trimming, fertilization, pest control and athletic field maintenance and field markings.
Self-help projects such as the creation of nature trails, vegetable gardens, flower beds, walking paths and so on must receive the written approval of Executive Director of Facilities and Operations before the project is started. Once implemented, failure to properly maintain the project by the campus will result in the area being returned to its original state.
Cleaning and repair of district’s roadways, walks, and parking lots, as well as the removal of storm drain debris are other services provided by our Grounds Department.
If you have a question about grounds maintenance, contact the Facilities Maintenance Grounds Supervisor.
