The primary responsibility of the Facilities Management (formerly School Plant) is to provide clean, safe schools buildings in which students can learn. Our physical plant consists of 62 buildings encompassing 3.6 million square feet of space located on 400 acres of land throughout the City of Worcester.
New Facility Use Permits Process
Facilities Management is pleased to announce that applications to use school facilities will now be routed electronically through the SchoolDude FSDirect web-based system beginning November 15, 2010.
To begin, print out the FSDirect Quick Set up Guide and review it. Then log in to FSDirect website and submit your application according to the FSDirect Quick Step Guide instructions.
The Worcester Public Schools utilizes an internet-based work management tool from SchoolDude.com called Maintenance Direct.
At each school site, designated staff have access to this program and are able to submit work requests for their building(s), as well as check the status of their requests, online.
Maintenance Direct has allowed the schools and the maintenance department to work together to identify and repair areas of the school system in need of attention.
