Facilities, Maintenance, & Operations

We know that the best learning takes place in a safe, clean, and cared-for environment, and our operations department makes this possible. Whether they’re providing maintenance on our air conditioning system, cleaning our classrooms, or working on the grounds, the members of this department know what it takes to keep everything running smoothly behind the scenes.

Our fiscal services office includes budgeting, transparency, and employee benefits. We desire to improve the quality and efficiency of school business operations at West Covina schools and communicate our responsible management with you, the taxpayers of Los Angeles County. 

Nutrition Services

The West Covina Nutrition Services Department as a team, is dedicated to uncompromising excellence in service and high quality meals to promote student health and achievement.

Purchasing, Reprographics, and Warehouse
