I am unsure whether maintenance position and janitorial is different in terms of classification of job in your school district (i.e., state job, county job).

However, you better be ready to prove the allegations you just cited here.  Why? This is the crux of your complaint.  What they are doing is criminal if true and you can certainly do something about.  Try www.attorneypages.com for a private attorney consultation.  If that doesn't work, try legal aid in your county.

Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
