Custodial Staff Receives AwardThe custodians in our schools are a vital component necessary for a successful sustainability program. In an effort to reward their “green” accomplishments, the CCEM Greening Schools Program along with CCSD and the contracted custodial companies are working together to recognize one school’s daytime custodial staff every nine week period throughout the school year.

Daytime custodial staff nominations are accepted from all custodial supervisors, school faculty or administrators, CCEM’s Greening School Representative and CCSD’s Sustainability Coordinator.
