Wake County (N.C.) restores cuts in school cleaning

Aug. 16, 2012
Floors will be swept and vacuumed 3 times a week, instead of 2

From The Raleigh News & Observer: Facilities in the Wake County (N.C.) school district will get an additional day of sweeping and vacuuming per week for the new school year, reversing a cut that was made last year. The district got more money than expected from the state, so the school board has boosted spending on school cleaning by $3 million. That will enable schools to have floors vacuumed and swept three times a week. During last year's budget crunch, the school board eliminated 70 custodial positions and reduced vacuuming and sweeping to twice a week.
