Tips on how to get ready for the upcoming inspection season
Why are schools inspected?
What happens to the scores & what are they used for?
Having a clean school furthers the mission of FCPS to provide a quality educational experience for every student.
The rubric details what goes into each of the numeric scores for every portion of the inspection.
The rubric is an excellent teaching / training tool when discussed with the entire team.
Set goals based on results from previous inspections using the rubric as a guide.

A: Please use the “sub request form” each and every time someone is absent. If we know you were short handed we won’t inspect your school.
2) Q: Why was I marked down for stained ceiling tiles?
A: If you have stained ceiling tiles due to a roof / pipe leak, and you have a work order in to Maintenance, tell us when we get there.
3) Q: Why did I get a 1 for “Chemicals properly stored, labeled and mixed”?
A: Having improperly diluted or un-marked chemicals / spray bottles is an OSHA violation and adversely impacts their effectiveness. This is graded as a 4 or 1.Inspection FAQ’s
10. Complete properly and turn in your IPM reports on a monthly basis. (Checking “no traps necessary” or turning in several months worth at a time is not what the Maryland Department of Agriculture is looking for)
9. Make sure all of your custodial closets have copies of the custodial assignment maps and emergency contact lists.
8. Clean the salt out of the salt spreader after each and every use. (This not only prepares it for the next use but protects the equipment over the long term)
7. Make sure your gym floor has been completely dry mopped. (including the corners) and no spills or gum are present.
6. Clean the glass doors in the hallways, classrooms, and cafeteria.
5. Make certain that 100% of your products are properly diluted and are in containers that are marked correctly. (Remember that this is scored as either a 1 or a 4 item and if either isn’t done this is an OSHA violation)
4. Dust or use the back pack to vacuum all ceiling vents, returns, and diffusers throughout your facility.
3. Wipe the base of every toilet and the underside of every urinal. (Not only impacts the cleanliness but helps combat odor as well)
2. Clean the restroom floors completely including behind the toilets.
1. Make sure the floors (carpet and tile) are being addressed on a nightly basis and are free of loose debris. (Please don’t “trash and dash” ignoring your floors)
