A Guide to the Management and Maintenance of School Grounds.
Wood, Joan; Littlewood, Michael
This guidebook helps schools identify their maintenance requirements, choose the best organizational model of maintenance to ensure they receive a good quality service for their money, and help teachers and administrators achieve whole school awareness and commitment to school maintenance management. Sections address evaluating a school's maintenance situation, understanding what the different types of grounds maintenance organizations do, choosing the most appropriate kind of maintenance agreement, and deciding who to work with. Also included are several case studies. Appendices provide a maintenance calendar, a glossary of terms, a list of professional organizations and other useful resources, and a guide to contract letting and monitoring. (GR)
