Fort Wayne Community Schools - Facility Planning

FWCS FACILITIES DEPARTMENT

Maintaining the buildings in Fort Wayne Community Schools is an important component of meeting the district’s goals. Academics are supported by suitable buildings. FWCS buildings are strong anchors in neighborhoods and serve families throughout the community, and being fiscally responsible requires these assets be maintained. Our children deserve well-maintained facilities that meet today’s educational needs.

The Facilities Department is responsible for all maintenance, repair, renovations, improvements and energy management for 61 educational and support buildings on 59 sites, serving nearly 30,000 students. Facilities and Maintenance & Operations take care of well over 800 acres and 5 million square feet of educational and support space. We work to keep our facilities operating efficiently and effectively. The Facilities Department is also responsible for all Capital Projects improvements, including both our annual Physical Plant Improvements (PPI) projects and our referendum-funded improvements (REPAIR FWCS).
