The Northfield Board of Education recognizes that the fixed assets of this district represent a significant investment of this community; their maintenance is, therefore, of prime concern to the board.

Northfield, New Jersey Monitored Mandated
Policy X Other Reasons

The board will develop, approve, and implement a comprehensive maintenance plan in accordance with the requirements of N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-3.1 and 6A:26A-3.2. A “comprehensive maintenance plan” means a multiyear maintenance plan developed by a school district covering required maintenance activities for each school facility in the school district pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-1.1 et seq.

Required maintenance activities, in accordance with N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-2.1, are those specific activities necessary for the purpose of keeping a school facility open and safe for the use or in its original condition, and for keeping its constituent building systems fully and efficiently functional and for keeping their warranties valid. The activities address interior and exterior conditions; include preventative and corrective measures; and prevent premature breakdown or failure of the school facility and its building systems.

Expenditures for required maintenance activities set forth in N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-2.1 shall be accounted for in accordance with the requirements of N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-2.2.

The required annual maintenance budget amount in the comprehensive maintenance plan shall be included in the district’s annual budget certified for taxes in accordance with the provisions of N.J.A.C. 6A:26A-4.1(a). The required annual maintenance budget amount shall be calculated and adjusted in accordance with the provisions of N.J.A.C. 6A:26A:4.1(b). The executive county superintendent, in accordance with the provisions of N.J.A.C. 6A:26A:4.1(c), may not approve the school district’s budget if the required annual maintenance budget is not included in the budget certified for taxes.

Maintenance and repair requests and repairs shall be processed in accordance with the procedures as outlined in Regulation 3512.
