Our Schools

Custodial Operations

Each school site has its own custodial staff. The number of custodial workers at each site is determined by a formula that takes into consideration the size of the building and cleaning density. The district maintains a staff of approximately 319 custodians in order to maintain the districts 6.3 million square feet of space. Night supervisors oversee evening custodial operations at all sites.

A typical cleaning schedule is as follows:

  • Offices are cleaned daily
  • Common areas and restrooms are cleaned and supplied daily
  • Trash is emptied every day
  • Corridors are buffed, stripped, and refinished as needed
  • Floor finishing and carpet cleaning is done on an as needed basis

Additional custodial time for special events and weekend activities may be provided to sites upon request. Groups and organizations will be charged for after hours custodial support. 

If sites have questions concerning custodial services, they should contact the Assistant Director of Custodial Operations at 817-299-4351.

Keys & Locks

All unoccupied offices and classrooms will be locked. Custodians may not have keys to all rooms, especially security-sensitive spaces. 

If you are locked out of a space, you will need to contact the site's building principal or the MISD Police Department for assistance in gaining entry. 

To obtain new keys or to replace lost keys, a written key request must be approved by the site's building principal. 

All requests for keys should be sent to Facilities Maintenance via the work order system.
