Building Management III is offered as a capstone course for high school. Students apply the knowledge and skills to perform advanced maintenance and upkeep of commercial and public buildings and grounds through specific hands-on training in cleaning operations, building repairs, electrical, plumbing, and grounds maintenance.

Note: Building Management III may be offered as a complement to an existing concentration sequence in any Career Cluster. In some instances, where noted, it may be combined with specific courses to create concentration sequences.

As noted in Superintendent’s Memo #058-17 (2-28-2017), this Career and Technical Education (CTE) course must maintain a maximum pupil-to-teacher ratio of 20 students to one teacher, due to safety regulations. The 2016-2018 biennial budget waiver of the teacher-to-pupil ratio staffing requirement does not apply.
