Atlanta, Ga - (April 18, 2016) - For more than a decade, Healthy Schools Campaign and partners have been changing the way schools are cleaned—with benefits for students, staff and the environment. Now, HSC is partnering with ISSA to expand our work and broaden our reach.
HSC has announced a five-year partnership with ISSA to promote green cleaning to the education sector. Building on HSC’s 10 years of promoting green cleaning in schools, this work will focus on establishing a vibrant network of school facility managers.
At the heart of this program is HSC’s Leadership Council, made up of the top school facility directors in the country. With their expertise and support, HSC will build a strong peer-to-peer professional network with the goal of engaging thousands of facility directors over five years. HSC believes this peer-to-peer network will move the needle on how schools are cleaned to protect both student health and the environment.
In 2016, this initiative will include two main components:
“Over the past decade, we have encouraged schools to make cleaning for health a priority,” says Rochelle Davis, HSC’s President + CEO. “Now we are focused on engaging directly with school facility directors. Our partnership with ISSA allows us to expand the programming we can offer to school facility directors.”
“ISSA is excited about taking our long-standing relationship with Healthy Schools Campaign to the next level for the common goal of promoting cleaner and healthier schools and universities across the nation,” says John Barrett, ISSA’s Executive Director. “It’s also an important step toward fulfilling our brand promise to change the way the world views cleaning.”
In addition, HSC will continue to present a number of webinars featuring award-winning facility operators who will share their green cleaning expertise. HSC is also partnering with the Green Sports Alliance to host a series of green cleaning workshops across the country. ISSA is the Workshop Tour Presenting Sponsor of this program and the first event will take place in Atlanta this spring.
