Custodial Services



The purpose of Custodial Services is to provide a safe, healthy, clean, and wholesome educational environment for the students and staff of the Tucson Unified School District; to provide support services for school related activities; to be honest and friendly in all interactions with students, their parents, staff and faculty members; to promote professional development and encourage professional deportment of Custodial Services Department staff and to promote good public relations as representatives of the Tucson Unified School District.

This purpose is accomplished by providing support services to site administrators and custodians. These support services include:

Training All custodians newly hired to Tucson Unified are required to receive initial training. Every custodian attends an annual mandatory training where new procedures are introduced and existing requirements are reinforced.
Inspections Sites receive periodic written reports documenting the condition of their facility. These reports acknowledge when district cleaning standards have been met and serve as a guide for improvement when standards are not being met. Inspections also ensure compliance with OSHA and Pima County Health Department regulations.
Substitutes Substitute custodians are temporary employees who provide coverage for long term absences.
Supervision Custodial Services assumes direct supervision of middle and elementary school custodians when administrators are off contract during summer break.
Workload Assessments Assesses and recommends distribution of custodial assignments.
Custodial Equipment Custodial appliance repair. Equipment loans. Recommendations of equipment for purchase by sites.
Chemicals Approval of all custodial chemicals for use in Tucson Unified facilities.
Carpet Cleaning Annual cleaning of all Tucson Unified carpets is required.
Emergencies Provide emergency response team for clean up of vandalism, floods, fires, etc.
