In the spring of 2012, ISSA and the Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) initiated the development of the Clean Standard: K-12. This Web page is intended to be a repository for information germane to the standard development process including but not limited to: a description of the standard development process; committee membership; notice of meetings; summaries of comments; and a copy of the draft standard. This page will be updated periodically as the standard development process moves forward. We encourage you to bookmark this page and check back periodically to receive updated information on the development of the Clean Standard: K-12.
ISSA and CIRI are working to establish a standard that promotes cleaner and healthier K-12 schools for students and others who spend significant time inside these facilities. The working title of this project has been dubbed the Clean Standard: K-12.
In furtherance of this endeavor, ISSA and CIRI conducted a survey of the members of both the Development and the Stakeholder Committees that was intended to elicit information that will be helpful in drafting a “straw man” document, which will facilitate the development of a Clean Standard: K-12.
The survey consisted of ten questions, the results of which are reported below. The first link below will take you to a summary of the overall responses to Questions 1-9 which requested respondents to select a response ranging from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree."
The second link will take you to a summary of the comments posted by respondents to Questions 1-9 as well as to Question 10.
