The 20 chapters of this guide to custodial staffing in educational facilities are grouped into five parts addressing: (1) staffing, (2) evaluation, (3) special considerations, (4) staff development tools, and (5) case studies. The five chapters on staffing are all by Jack C. Dudley and are titled: "General Methods"; "The Mathematics of Change"; "The Space Inventory"; "Barton Hall--The Macro Staffing Solution; and "Custodial Areas and Scheduling--The Micro Staffing Solution." The three chapters on evaluation are: "The Cost of Cleaning" (Jack C. Dudley); "How Clean Are You? Determining Your Facility's Level of Cleanliness" (Philip L. Brown); and "Contracting the Cleaning" (Jack C. Dudley). Four chapters address special considerations: "Residence Halls" (Julia Wertz); "Healthcare Facilities" (Jim Adams); "K-12 Facilities" (Tom Spearing); and "Community and Vocational/Technical Colleges" (Jack C. Dudley). Staff development tools are discussed in three chapters: "Hiring, Orientation, and Standard Operating Procedures" (Judy A. Stead); "Training the Staff" (Paul Cortney); and "Team or Specialized Cleaning" (Jim Adams). The last five chapters provide case studies: "Analysis and Reorganization" (Julia Wertz); "Case Study: The Georgetown Experience" (Henry L. Wells and Richard P. Payant); "Case Study: The Toledo Experience" (Judy A. Stead); "Case Study: The Wooster Experience" (Julia Wertz); and "Case Study: The Georgia State Experience" (James E. Sears).
