Custodial Programs for K-12 School Districts

As school districts cut costs, custodial departments are now exploring and implementing methods to reduce custodial costs without compromising a healthy and safe environment for the K-12 students, staff and visitors. Contact Core to discover why so many custodial organizations hire Core to maximize savings and to improve services

"Core provided external validation that our existing operations and practices were excellent. At the same time, they showed us ways we could save additional dollars."

Keep your Custodial Program In-house and Save Money

Outsourced Custodial Programs are an Option for Some

Assess and Improve your Quality Levels with Smart Inspect

Your custodians offer the first line of defense against publicly-traded health risks. They are also responsible for many non-cleaning duties as well. They secure your buildings, they respond to emergencies and they support the students, staff and community throughout a wide variety of school activities.

Core has the production rate information and workloading tools to help you assess the resources you currently allocate to both your cleaning and your non-cleaning related activities.

We assess your key metrics:

  • Square feet per custodian
  • Cleaning quality
  • Square feet per hour
  • Net cleanable square footage
  • Cost per square foot
  • Supplies and equipment
  • Training programs

Our program will help you identify program redesign options, cost savings and quality improvement opportunities.

In-house custodians are often neighbors, relatives and friends from the community. Help them improve the long-term viability of their organization by pursuing and implementing industry best-practices from in-house and outsourced programs alike.

Core takes great pride in preserving in-house cleaning organizations by helping to implement these ideas and techniques. You can stay in-house and you can save money while improving quality.

While we stand firmly committed to the importance of preserving in-house K-12 custodial organizations, we recognize that for some, outsourcing some or all of the cleaning may be an option as well. Core provides key market data, RFP assistance, and transition support whenever outsourcing custodial services is the best option.

A top-performing cleaning program must include a quality management process. You can immediately implement or upgrade a quality program by installing Core’s Smart Inspect quality application. This web-based program allows your inspectors to use smart phones or tablets to collect quality data, uploading the inspection results and photographs to the cloud for easy dashboards, reports and analysis. Core also provides independent third-party quality inspections for organizations seeking objective results.
