Buildings and Grounds

Every school day, students and staff are influenced by the environment in which they learn and work. Leading the charge in creating a safe, clean and comfortable learning and working environment is the district’s Buildings and Grounds Department, comprised of cleaners, maintenance workers, custodians, and their supervisors.

Facilities Use Requests

The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District encourages community use of school facilities when such use is in the public interest, does not conflict with school activities, and is not detrimental to the purpose of schools. Residents, staff members, and community groups can make requests to use the district’s facilities here.

In September 2016, a state law went into effect that requires all public school districts in New York to test water for lead. The law requires school districts to sample all water outlets currently or potentially used for drinking or cooking purposes in buildings that may be occupied by students and to submit those samples to a state-approved lab for analysis.
