Mr. Ralph Belloc, Facilities Director, was recognized on Tuesday, January 10, as the January Staff Member of the Month during the district's Governing Board meeting. Mr. Belloc has been instrumental over the last 18 months in ensuring that the Operations team, within Casa Grande Union High School District (CGUHSD), is functioning efficiently and optimally. His leadership has resulted in significant Building Renewal Grant dollars flowing to CGUHSD relieving the capital and M&O budget of financial pressure. During the last six months, Mr. Belloc 's team secured grant dollars for cooling towers replacement at Vista Grande High School ($432,000), emergency roof repairs for the Olasky at Casa Grande Union High School ($40,000), and a complete roof replacement at Casa Grande Union High School ($3.9m). Further, our preventative maintenance plans put into place by Mr. Belloc and his team have ensured that CGUHSD has met the requirements to qualify for these grant funds as the SFOB (School Facility Oversight Board) does not allow BRG dollars to be released to districts who have not maintained their equipment. Mr. Belloc has also led CGUHSD to almost full staffing in custodial services after receiving support from our Governing Board to raise hourly wages for this job classification and continues to ensure that work orders are complete in a timely fashion through our facilities management tools. Finally, Mr. Belloc works to ensure that every dollar of the Operations Department budget is used in an efficient manner so CGUHSD can continue to maximize dollars in learning experiences and outcomes for students. For these reasons, Mr. Belloc was recognized as the Staff Member of the Month. For past recipients, visit www.cguhsd.org/doStaffMemberOfMonth.aspx.
