Buildings & Grounds
The Chappaqua Central School District's buildings — six schools, the administration building (The Education Center), and the "pole barn" maintenance building — are located on six sites encompassing 206 acres.
Joseph Gramando, Director of Facilities, Operations and Maintenance, oversees 59 staff members, most of whom work in the district buildings as cleaners and custodians. Seven maintenance and grounds workers maintain the school buildings.
In 2010 the department adopted a $12 million energy performance contract with Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls to reduce energy consumption. This involves the installation of solar and wind energy equipment, replacing old windows and doors, and installing new boilers and energy-efficient light fixtures. Johnson Controls guarantees that the work will pay for itself in energy savings over 18 years.
