Davison schools uses private custodial services for nighttime cleaning

DAVISON — The Davison board of education voted to hire D.M. Burr Facilities Management Inc. to provide nighttime cleaning services to the district, according to the Davison Index. None of the district’s current custodians will be let go, but instead will be moved to daytime positions.

Cleaning schedules at several buildings had been reduced to less than once a day prior to the move. The district did not have enough staff to provide the services, as previous employees who retired or resigned were not replaced.

"We’re actually going to get some services back, and we’re not going to have to cut instructional services. Our first priority is teaching kids," school board President Kim Lindsay told the Index.
