Custodial Services Background
Prior to 2012 our system operated a totally “in house” custodial program where Human Resources hired and managed the workforce, Principals managed the custodians at their schools, and Maintenance provided training and support. Barrow County Schools owned and maintained the equipment and a vendor provided supplies based on inventory managed by the head custodians, Maintenance, and the vendor.
From 2012 through 2016 our System utilized a contractor provided custodial program in which a single vendor furnished all custodial equipment, supplies, labor and management. This approach was implemented primarily as a cost savings measure as a result of the economic downturn and cuts made to the budget.
In the Winter of 2016 our Superintendent and Board of Education approved of a new direction for our custodial program. A “hybrid” approach was installed where a staffing company provides the labor and management of this personnel, Maintenance trains and supports the custodians utilizing a cleaning plan as developed in coordination with a consultant, and a vendor provides and manages the distribution of supplies and performs preventive maintenance on the equipment. New equipment was purchased by the System as part of this program.
