When operating a large district like Mentor Public Schools, which spans nearly 30 square miles with enrollment of 7,800+ students, there are a number of facilities involved. For our district, that’s a total of 17 buildings valued at $212,793,000.
Part of the Mentor Schools Strategic Plan is to maximize the capacity, effectiveness and efficiency of all of our resources, including facilities. Our Business Operations Department manages a five-year maintenance and repair budget of $1.1 Million to ensure we are good stewards of our tax-payer dollars by taking care of these valuable community assets.
Additionally, our facilities are regularly used beyond educational purposes. Mentor Schools owns the largest outdoor and indoor facilities available for community use in Lake County, our football stadium and fine arts center. You may remember from Financial Facts #12, these facilities provide an alternative revenue source for the district as well.
