PC4HS to Begin Implementation at Springfield Public Schools - 2nd Largest District in New England

By PC4HS Staff

Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools® (PC4HS) − a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt national nonprofit organization with a mission of “schools helping schools” – will begin implementing the PC4HS system, April 2015, at Springfield Public Schools (SPS), the 2nd largest district in New England, having 57 schools, 2,458 teachers and 4,800 employees, serving 25,764 students. 

 

PC4HS is being assisted by M.D. Stetson.

“We are eager to assist this large and diverse educational community with a proven program, standardized training, and repeatable results for better, healthier cleaning within budget,” said Rex Morrison, founder and president of PC4HS.

PC4HS seeks to achieve results for SPS by standardizing best practices and breaking tasks down into essential repeatable elements to produce manageable, measurable and accountable outcomes; steps that harmonize with SPS’s own standardization goals.

For example, in September 2008, SPS demonstrated a commitment to the benefits of standardization by making school uniforms mandatory throughout the district. (“Research shows that school uniforms support a safe and disciplined learning environment, which is the first requirement of any good school,” noted SPS).

Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PC4HS) strives to create standardized best practices including:

•           Providing specific standardized information schools need to perform cleaning tasks effectively and consistently.
•           Identifying “high touch points” that have a likelihood of a high level of contamination.
•           Outlining proper steps from start to finish.
•           Specifying tools/equipment/products needed to perform tasks.
•           Providing recommended time frames for completion.
•           Showing how to use technology and quality equipment to improve return on investment.
•           Providing a means of monitoring and measuring cleaning performance, including direct practice observation, ATP testing, and other methods.
•          And much more.
