Director of Custodial Services and Transportation
Welcome to the Lincoln Public Schools Custodial Services and Transportation website. As department director I am very proud to oversee the many dedicated employees of this district responsible for cleanliness of facilities and safe transportation of students. The following is a brief overview of our department functions and responsibilities:
Custodial services are provided at all educational and support facilities throughout the school district. Each school is assigned a custodial team responsible for cleaning and upkeep at that site. In addition, school custodians also assist with the set up, tear down, and clean up after various facility uses by outside users.
Transportation services provided by the district are that which are required by law including elementary and middle school students residing over 4 miles from the school in their attendance area. Also students who have been moved for the benefit of the district in instances of over crowding, major facility renovation, or efficiency in use of school buildings. Transportation is also provided to special education students that have transportation identified as part of their individual education program.
Please feel free to contact me with any operations related questions via e-mail or through the phone number listed on this page.
