The manual is divided into five categories. (1) "Basics of Good School Maintenance" covers management concepts, energy conservation, safety, and building design. (2) "General Building Maintenance" provides basic methods for organizing and carrying out procedures for routine cleaning and external building care. (3) "Grounds Maintenance" offers management programs and step-by-step procedures for the care of trees, shrubs, lawns, and asphalt surfaces. (4) "Mechanical Equipment" covers routing maintenance and repair procedures for heating and air conditioning systems (from boilers to temperature controls), sanitary systems and fixtures, sewage treatment plants, electrical systems, and food service equipment. (5) "Management Tools Appendix" provides ready-to-use forms for work assignments, record keeping, work evaluations, and physical plant inspections. (Author/MLF)
