Green Cleaning Spotlight: LaPorte Community School Corporation, LaPorte, Ind.

May 20, 2010

Laporte-floor-cleaner-200912 Congratulations to LaPorte Community School Corporation!

In the Green Cleaning Awards
sponsored by  HSC, the Green Cleaning Network and American School & University
magazine, it received the School District Honorable Mention.

The LaPorte Community School Corporation's green cleaning program started in 2009, and it has already made great strides.

Custodians use microfiber and green cleaning products, and the district is formulating a long-term cleaning program that uses software designed to identify how much cleaning each area will need. The program also balances staffing and helps establish cleaning processes. Communication and evaluation between cleaning staff and the district continues to grow  — regular feedback and cleaning checklists provide strong tools for collaboration.
