The primary mission of the Rockwall ISD Operations Department is to serve the needs of students, staff and faculty to promote high-quality learning and development. We strive to support the educational goals of the district by ensuring a safe, clean, and functional academic environment. The Operations Department is comprised of the following areas:
FACILITY SERVICES - The Facility Services Department includes Facility Maintenance, Service Fleet Repair, Security and Life-Safety Systems, Landscaping, and Custodial Services. The Department is responsible for ensuring that the physical environment in Rockwall ISD is maintained at the highest level to meet the expectations of our community and staff.
FACILITIES PLANNING AND CONSTRUCTION - The Facilities Planning and Construction Department supports the district by providing an engaging environment for both internal and external stakeholders to actively participate in facility planning and design. The Department's responsibilities include but are not limited to analyzing current and future facility needs, managing activities through the various project milestones, and ensuring compliance with all local, state and federal codes and regulations.
CHILD NUTRITION - The Child Nutrition Department supports learning and development by providing high-quality meals to students, staff and community. The Department ensures all meals comply with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 as well as other local, state and federal nutrition requirements.
STUDENT TRANSPORTATION - The Transportation Department includes Student Transportation, Bus Fleet Repair and Crossing Guard Services. The Department supports the district by providing a safe and enjoyable experience for the students, staff and volunteers who ride the buses and walk/bike to school.
FACILITY RESERVATIONS - The Facility Reservations Department supports the district by coordinating a variety of events for students and staff as well as community members. These events serve to enhance the educational experience for our students and community.
ENERGY MANAGEMENT - The Energy Management Department supports student learning by helping to reduce energy consumption, thus costs, for the district. The program's success is directly attributable to the efforts of all Rockwall ISD students and staff as they become more energy aware and conservation-minded.
SAFETY SECURITY - The Safety Security Department equips our district with state of the art Camera Surveillance, Access Control, Fire, and Burglar Alarm systems. All campuses have monitored Fire and Burglar systems. Uniformed School Resource Officers (SRO) are assigned to all secondary campuses. We also have SRO’s that visit our Elementary campuses daily. Each school uses the RAPTOR Visitor Management System to ensure campus security. A copy of the District’s Emergency Procedures Manual and individual security plans are also available on each campus. Rockwall ISD strives to keep our campuses safe to enable students the best environment for learning.
