A Safe, Clean School Building Environment
In addition to regular building cleaning and maintenance, the School Building Services Department is responsible for responding to emergencies within a school building. Should an emergency arise, the building’s senior custodian and Ed Clancy should be notified immediately. Ed Clancy can be reached at (617) 799-7443. If you are unable to contact Ed, please call Matt Gillis, Director of Operations at (617) 730-2419.
Use of School Building Program
The School Building Services Department manages the Use of School Building Rental Program. Organizations both inside and outside the School Department may use space within the school buildings for social, community-based or sporting events.
The Building Services Department maintains a strict protocol for Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is an approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common-sense practices for preventing and controlling pests such as insects and small rodents. In an IPM approach, all possible pest management options are considered, not just pesticides. Considerable effort is also put towards preventing pest problems by controlling conditions in buildings that might attract and support pests. IPM plans have been developed for each school to ensure the health and safety of students, teachers, staff, administrators and all others using Brookline’s public school buildings.
IPM is a collaborative effort involving administrators, teachers, students, facilities staff and pest control operators, among others. All pest sightings should be noted in the IPM logbook located in the Administrative office of each school. A complete IPM plan, including instructions for logging sightings, is available in the Principal’s office. A copy is also provided to the Massachusetts Department of Food and Agriculture and is updated annually. The senior custodian at each school checks the logbook daily and arranges corrective action through the Building Services Department.
