The implementation of this program will help to achieve these goals.

The basic structure of the program is as follows:

  1. Private offices: Recycling, trash removal, and floor services will be provided on alternate days of the week. Typically, offices are cleaned twice per week, depending on usage.
  2. Classrooms and instructional areas: Mopping/vacuuming is typically provided on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, all other services will remain daily. Depending on the use of the classroom the floor service may be less than three days per week.
  3. Corridors and stairwells: Mopping/vacuuming is typically provided two or three times per week depending on usage or as needed during inclement conditions.
  4. High traffic public offices: These areas will have daily cleaning services to include mopping and vacuuming.
  5. Restrooms: These areas receive daily cleaning service.

Should the need arise for "fill in" service on days not scheduled, staff will be available to cover "emergencies".
