Custodial Management Practices in the Public Schools. Research Bulletin No. 19.
Gland, James R.; Wildey, Carl A.
The purpose of this study was to gather information regarding custodial management practices in public schools of the United States. Much of the analysis is based on Gland's 1971 study of custodial programs in selected Indiana public schools. School district administrative personnel responsible for maintenance and plant operations were surveyed to determine the following: which of 75 custodial management practices were used in the district, which of the 75 practices were judged to be sound, why school officials judged certain practices to be sound, why school districts were not using certain practices that they judged sound, whether a relationship exists between union affiliation of custodial staff and use of sound custodial management practices, and whether a relationship exists between school district size and use of sound custodial management practices.
