Providing a safe, healthy and functional learning environment for the students, staff and families of Lake Orion Community Schools is the responsibility of the district’s Facilities Management Department.

This team manages custodial, maintenance, grounds, landscaping, energy conservation, environmental compliance and security operations at 14 buildings on a combined 380 acres of school property across the 50 square-mile district.  It also manages the district’s annual construction and renovation programs, plus other internal capital projects.

In recent years, the Department has been charged with improving the energy efficiency of the district’s facilities.  This includes upgrades to heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, installation of direct digital controls and alarms for critical equipment, lighting system retrofits and roofing upgrades.  Combined, these enhancements save Lake Orion Community Schools approximately 25 percent annually in energy costs.  Better lifecycle planning using more sustainable materials with greater longevity and less upkeep costs also has positively impacted the school district.  

The Facilities Management Department is in the midst of employing a number of security system enhancements to the district’s buildings, which encompasses 1.6 million square feet of space. This includes improved access control, intrusion detection and voice/video camera systems.  Additional security measures are proposed, to be enacted as the district’s budget permits.

In addition to K-12 education, virtually all of Lake Orion’s school buildings and grounds are used during evenings and on weekends during the school year, as well as vacation periods.  The buildings are often used for community education programs, special events and local groups that rent the facilities.  This includes various community sports, cultural, civic, business and related organizations.
