In the past two community surveys, Well Maintained Buildings & Grounds has been in the top five strengths of our district. We take great pride in creating a space, which makes learning exciting and fun as well as a place where the community can truly enjoy the talent of our amazing students.

While we take the daily cleaning and maintenance of our facilities seriously, we, like our students, are continually learning and implementing new technology to become more efficient and cost effective. Among all of the automation and LED advancements, OCS is a pioneer in alternative energies. Oregon City Schools is progressive when it comes to working with alternative energies. With combined wind power of 1.1 megawatts produced by three wind turbines, the district was already leading the nation in energy production but add to that total 450 kilowatts of solar (162 kWh at Jerusalem and 288 kWh at Starr) and Oregon truly is a trail blazer in alternative electricity produced and consumed.

Facilities & Maintenance


    Permanent Improvement projects will focus on true need items such as repairs to roof, asphalt, aging plumbing fixtures, doors, etc. in addition to the continuation of the district’s LED lighting project.

    The major projects we anticipate this year are:

    • New building for Clay High School Agriculture & Environmental Technologies facilities
    • Systems upgrades in building PA systems, Access Control, Alarms, and Radios

    Asbestos Management Program

    On October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA, Public Law 99-519). The act required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop regulations for addressing asbestos in public and private elementary and secondary schools. On October 30, 1987, the EPA published the Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools Rule (40 CFR Part 763 Subpart E). This rule stipulated, and our district has complied with, the following key requirements:

    • Identification of asbestos-containing materials in all school buildings.
    • Development and implementation of asbestos management plans for each school.
    • Regular surveillance and re-inspections of the condition of asbestos in the buildings.
    • Designation and training of a person to oversee asbestos activities within the district and to ensure compliance with the regulations.

    This memorandum is to advise you that asbestos management plans for the district schools were developed following the EPA ruling. These plans are regularly updated and are available for you to review.

    Should you have any questions regarding this program or would like to review an asbestos management plan, please contact the Board of Education offices during normal business hours.
