CASH Maintenance Network: New Healthy Schools Resource
Healthy Schools: Cleaning, Disinfecting, Healthy Air Quality, Scheduling and Social Distancing
A Resource for School Facility and Maintenance Departments
COVID-19 has presented significant challenges as education and state leaders contemplate re-opening schools in a way that ensures they are clean, safe and healthy. The CASH Maintenance Network (CMN), as part of the Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH), has developed the Healthy Schools: Cleaning, Disinfecting, Healthy Air Quality, Scheduling and Social Distancing Guidebook to provide K-12 school maintenance and facility departments with guidance, Best Management Practices (BMPs), and key resources.
The “Healthy Schools Guidebook” includes information on how to keep students and staff safe, cleaning and disinfecting, ensuring healthy indoor air quality, social distancing and scheduling, and managing fiscal impact. The Guidebook was developed by practitioners from school maintenance departments, school facility directors, county offices of education, and private industry, and is intended as a practical guide. The CMN would like to thank them for their contributions to this project.
