School Custodial Services: Exemplary Standards and Practices.
Worrell, William K.
This publication reports on research conducted on exemplary practices affecting the standards and the delivery of custodial services in schools. Specifically, the study attempted to (1) survey practices in several school districts with exemplary custodial programs and suggest a formula or formulas that would provide a logical basis for determining a custodian's workload and serve as a guide in the establishment of a legitimate work expectancy for an 8-hour shift; (2) search out and provide sample job descriptions appropriate for a head school custodian as well as for assistants; (3) search out and provide exemplary samples of planned daily responsibilities for a custodian's job description; and (4) search out from several districts and provide information on recommended techniques, materials, equipment, and personnel training for effective and efficient school custodial services. This report is organized into four sections, each section dealing with one of the objectives stated above: (1) formulas for work schedules; (2) job descriptions; (3) samples of planned responsibilities; and (4) supplies, equipment, and personnel training.
