Facilities Maintenance Management Practices in Large Public Schools, Texas.

Web Abstract: 
The purpose of this paper is to present previous studies and reports which have shown that most school buildings in the USA suffer from inadequate physical conditions. As American school buildings become “older”, it is essential for every school district to have an effective facilities maintenance management plan of its facilities. Therefore, the main purpose of this study is to identify and analyze how facilities maintenance is planned, managed and carried out by large public schools in the State of Texas. The overall findings of this research indicate a poor quality of facilities maintenance management practices exists in large public schools in Texas. [Authors' abstract]
