About Maintenance & Operations (M&O)

Maintenance & Operations is responsible for maintaining and operating the following areas:

M&O uses an online work order system to manage non-emergency campus facility needs. It should not be used for situations where someone's health and safety is at immediate risk. In this case dial 911 (8-911 from most campus telephones). The work order system is referred to as SCHOOL DUDE and is addressed below.

Maintenance & Operations Emergencies and Routing Work Orders

All facility emergencies, e.g. major water leaks, utility outages, sewer backups, immediate safety hazard, fallen trees, obstructed sidewalks, gas odors, or any situation that is a major impact to campus facilities/environment, should be called directly to the M&O office at (925) 424-1760 (Las Positas) or (510) 723-7206 (Chabot) during regular operating hours (6:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.). If outside the regular operating hours, during weekends, or on holidays, please contact the Security Office at (925) 424-1699 (Las Positas) or (510) 723-6923 (Chabot). Be as specific as possible when reporting an issue.


School Dude is used and accessible by deans and administrative assistants to record all routine maintenance, custodial, and grounds requests. CLPCCD employees should submit all facility maintenance requests through the online School Dude program.

This system works a little different as it allows anyone to write a work request. The request is then automatically routed to the managers designee for the area selected. The work order is then approved before routing to M&O. Please follow the directions below on how to register and log in.(when requested the account number is 1781417472 ).

Custodial Services

Day Crew

The custodians on the day shift clean floors when an emergency arises, check restrooms for paper and required supplies, assist Security unlocking classroom doors, and perform routine housekeeping as time permits. Each campus normally has coverage of two (2) custodians during the day.

Day custodians also take requests for setups for special events. These typically include requests for tables, chairs, and lecturns for departmental events, student union activities, speakers, etc.

Night Crew

The custodial staff provides general housekeeping/custodial service, such as restroom cleaning, restroom sanitizing, and all other forms of cleaning including walls, floors, wastebaskets, classrooms, halls, and trash disposal.

The custodial staff turns off lights in the evening in unoccupied classrooms and offices. The campus buildings are typically locked at varying times dependent upon the building function and opened again at 6:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. To have a building opened at other hours or weekends, please contact Campus Safety.

The custodial department typically provides annual cleaning of carpets in all buildings on campus. However, we understand that there are times where additional cleaning in between may be required due to heavy traffic, events, or other activities. To request carpet cleaning, please submit a work order request.

While staff regularly checks and fills all paper towel, soap, and toilet paper dispensers, sometimes additional service is required. If you see a unit that is empty, please call the M&O office for assistance.

Office Move Checklist

Furniture and equipment moves should be approved and coordinated through the appropriate administrator, who in turn routes the request to the M&O office. All requests should be given as much advance notice as possible.

Note: For items that will not be re-used and will be deemed as surplus, you will need to contact the Purchasing department.

Large moves of an entire building or group from one building to another is planned and scheduled through Facilities and completed with moving contractors.

Grounds Services

The grounds staff handles all routine maintenance of trees, shrubbery, lawns, sidewalks, and parking lots. While the staff regularly empties the exterior containers, if you see an exterior recycling or trash container that is full and needs to be emptied, please contact the M&O office.

Water conservation is a very important concern to the district. Please report any problems you might see with our irrigation system, e.g. leaking or misdirected sprinkler heads, erosion around sprinklers, running water, or flooding.

Campus Fleet

Vehicle maintenance staff provides maintenance and repair on all college-owned motorized vehicles and equipment including pickups, vans, and tractors.

The Maintenance department maintains campus fleet vehicles for use by college employees. Campus fleet vehicles are located at both campuses and are comprised of the following:

The campus fleet vehicles may be used for employee or athletic events, field trips, and certain non-athletic events. Any employee who wishes to operate any college-owned fleet vehicle must provide the M&O office with a current copy of their driver's license and adhere to the class restrictions established by the Department of Motor Vehicles. In addition to verification of driving privileges, you must complete and return the Request for Vehicle Usage form signed by the administrator of your area.
