Energy Conservation in Our Schools--A Practical Approach.
Brewin, C. Edwin; Racich, Matthew J.
A practical approach designed to reduce energy waste by schools is to improve the knowledge and upgrade the skills of school building custodians. This paper discusses an operation and maintenance training program for custodians developed by the Will County (Illinois) educational service region. The major parts of the program consist of skill building in the following systems: architectural; electrical; heating, ventilating, and air conditioning; water and sanitation; and food service. Besides recordkeeping, a strong emphasis of the program is on regular and preventative maintenance. Instruction is provided via on-the-job training with some independent study required. (Author/LD)
