How schools should be cleaned and disinfected

The second part of the Guidelines Manual for Maintenance of School Buildings and educational videos, made as a part of the USAID Youth Ethnic Integration Project in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Science (Sector for Capital Investments), in coordination with the Office of Defense Cooperation in the US Embassy in Skopje, were published. They contain detailed procedures for cleaning, disinfecting and maintaining safety in schools.

The school is a place where students and teachers spend the bigger part of their day, so it should be clean, safe and pleasant for studying and working. Especially during a pandemic, the entrances, classrooms, objects in the building and the toilets should be regularly cleaned and disinfected. The staff should wear an appropriate protective equipment while performing these activities.

Also, in the event of natural disasters, the schools should ensure the safety of the students and staff through forming teams that will make a protection and rescue plan.

All of this is elaborated in the published Manual together with good practices and experiences regarding the maintenance of solar power systems.

All materials are available on the website of the Ministry of Education and Science and you can take a look at them here.

This activity is part of the Youth Ethnic Integration Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
