Business Operations

Our Maintenance Supervisor, Greg Linkenbach, is a leader behind the scenes at Perkins Local Schools. While our excellent staff works hard to empower our students for success, Greg works behind the scenes to make sure they are working in a safe and effective learning environment. Business Operations is charged with the maintenance and care of our facilities, including everything from custodial duties to the upkeep of our classrooms and grounds to major permanent improvement projects. The Business Operations team works closely with the Treasurer to ensure maintenance and repair dollars are spent effectively, arranging several quotes for each project. A formal bidding process kicks in for certain expenditures when the total estimated cost reaches certain thresholds (more information about that on our Bid Opportunities page).
