37th Annual Maintenance and Operations Cost Study: Schools.

Web Abstract: 
Presents the results of a 2007 study of public school districts, revealing that maintenance and operations expenditures averaged 8.35 percent of total expenditures, which is lower than the previous year's figure of 9.19 percent. The square footage maintained per custodial worker rose 14 percent to 26,786. Rising energy costs are forcing cuts in other areas of maintenance and operations. The survey methodology is described, with numerous tables displaying costs per student, costs per square foot, historical spending data, types of expenditures, payroll and personnel data, and buildings and grounds statistics.
