Caledonia Community Schools Operations Office
Our staff is responsible for supporting all of our facility and grounds needs for the school district.
The district has just over one million, one hundred thousand square feet (1,100,000) of building space and three hundred twenty (320) acres of land.
This is for repairs, broken infrastructure, heating and cooling issues, and the like.
CCS Operations uses the SchoolDude work order program to track, prioritize, assign, and schedule maintenance work orders.
To create a work order, any staff member may go to - https://login.myschoolbuilding.com/msb (first time users will be asked to create a user account).
Our Organization number is: 267068928. The submittal password is simply: cal.
The project request form is the place to start if you need something built, changed, painted, floored, added or deleted this is the place to get your project off the ground.
Proposing a project starts here by printing or filling out the form and bringing it to your building principal or corresponding administrator for a signature. Funding is addressed on the form and you may need to secure it before a project gets off the ground – or at a minimum have a good plan for it.
After your building administrator has signed it, scan, send, or interoffice mail the form to the Operations office. Once the form is in, Operations will review it for code compliance, costs, resource commitments, and feasibility. Forms will then be shared to the District Cabinet group for consideration. You’ll be notified on a project status and next steps.
The deadline for Submission for consideration of project work during the summer is May 1st.

Water Quality Information
Caledonia Community Schools Water Quality Information
Caledonia Community Schools tests its water on an annual basis. Water samples are taken from two sources at each building and tested at the Kent County Health Department. Results of these tests can be found below by clicking the building link. The table below lists each building and the drinking water source. The majority of our water comes from our local municipalities. However, the district does operate wells at two of our buildings. Water quality reports for Gaines Caledonia and Gaines Township treatment facilities can be viewed by clicking the associated link. All testing results fall within acceptable ranges as outlined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) has begun a statewide initiative to test drinking water from all schools that use well water and community water supplies. The test is looking for a group of manmade chemicals called per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). MDEQ is taking this precautionary step of testing these drinking water sources to determine if public health actions are needed.
It is not uncommon to find low levels of PFAS in drinking water supplies, as PFAS can be found in fire-fighting foams, stain repellents, nonstick cookware, waterproof clothing, food wrappers, and many other household products. They do not break down in the environment and move easily into water.
The EPA set an LHA level for two PFAS in drinking water, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). The LHA level is 70 parts per trillion (ppt, equal to 70 ng/L) for PFOA and PFOS combined, or individually if only one is present. The EPA has not set health advisory levels for other PFAS compounds. The State of Michigan is using 70 ppt for decision-making purposes.
All building water supplies have been tested by AECOM, MDEQ’s contractor and all water sources exceed The State of Michigan Standards. The test results can be found on the Michigan PFAS Action Response Team website, www.michigan.gov/pfasresponse.
