A Custodian is the heartbeat of a school

A custodian is the heart of a schoolAsk any student, and they'll tell you: custodians don't just fix and clean. As a daily presence dedicated to making campuses safe and smoothing-running, custodians are part of the fabric of what makes school home for the day.

At Santa Cruz City Schools, we support a custodial team that takes pride in being an indispensable part of the team to make students feel safe and welcome at school.

They raise the U.S. flag each morning, tend flower beds, clear litter and direct traffic at drop off. When a light bulb needs to be changed, a window unstuck, a soap dispenser filled, a ceiling tile replaced or some touchup of paint added, unloading deliveries and handling an unexpected spill, Custodians take the lead. School Custodians also are part of the administration’s eyes and ears and can play a large part in spotting tensions among students and curbing vandalism.

They are the first to arrive in the morning or the last to leave at night.

SCCS goes Greener with new technology floor cleaners.

Green Policy

  • The ec-H2O NanoClean® technology* of our new floor cleaners electrically converts water into an innovative, detergent-free solution that cleans effectively, saves money, and reduces our environmental impact compared to daily floor cleaning chemicals. This converted water is created by an on-board e-cell that generates millions of tiny microscopic bubbles known as nanobubbles that promote the cleaning efficacy of the solution. Because it uses less water our operators have fewer empty-fill cycles. And, because there are no chemicals to buy, mix, or store, we significantly reduce labor time and simplify operation and maintenance.

  • The ec-H2O NanoClean® is certified by the NFSI to improve floor traction and reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents. Additionally, NSF registration ensures the technology is safe to use in food and beverage handling environments.

  • According to a third-party study, the ec-H2O NanoClean® significantly reduces the impact of cleaning operations in seven key categories: energy, CO2 emissions, ozone, smog, acid, eutrophication, and particulates. 

We continue to reduced our environmental footprint by using these scrubbers:
