Maintenance and Facilities
Twenty six years ago Paul began working as a part time night custodian for the old Greenbrae School. Paul did this for a year, working in construction during the day and for the district in the evening until a full time position became available. Since then he has held several positions, including Night Custodian, Day Custodian, Grounds Maintenance and his current position as Director of Maintenance.
At the time that Paul assumed the Director of Maintenance position, the District was in the early stages of an extensive modernization project which included a new library, community center and the "round building" renovation at Bacich School. At Kent, renovations included a new library, classrooms and a new gymnasium.
In 2003 the community supported a second construction bond which allowed the District to add additional classrooms and finish the renovation of all remaining classrooms on both campuses. The bond also funded landscaping and a new day care facility.
The District has seen many physical changes in the last 26 years. When he began, many of the classrooms had not been updated since 1949. During his time in the District, he has seen and overseen the transformaton of both campuses from outdated to modern facilities.
A recent quote was made by another director of maintenance: "Kentfield and Reed are the standards we strive to achieve." Paul feels very fortunate to have been a contributor to this transformation and he takes great pride in ensuring the facilities will continue to be maintained at a high standard.
