As districts nationwide begin the new school year, classroom hygiene is more important than ever before. With COVID-19 still looming, routine cleaning and disinfecting are crucial to maintaining a safe environment for faculty, students and staff. Allow intuitive technology to automate your cleaning plan with the ability to request and track the cleaning of classrooms with the touch of a button.

Telecenter U®, an advanced network-based school communications system from Rauland, now includes new features designed to help school districts, schools and classrooms operate within CDC guidelines during COVID-19. The new software and hardware components complement the existing integrated solutions designed for everyday education communications, scheduling, event management and emergencies.

[One of the features] new to Telecenter U [is]... custom cleaning buttons that track the cleanliness of the entire facility. 

[These] new custom cleaning buttons request and track the cleaning of classrooms across the entire campus, while the Telecenter U online mapping feature shows the cleanliness of the entire school at a glance. Status lights indicate when rooms need cleaning or are ready for use.

“The CDC recommends that frequently touched surfaces within schools are cleaned and disinfected at least daily or between use as much as possible,” said George Lind, Rauland's Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Education North America. “These customizable cleaning schedules are easily modified to adjust to new calendars, staggered entrances and exits, and the travel flow of the student body.”

The cleaning hardware panel for classrooms and offices includes “need cleaning,” “room cleaned,” and “emergency call” buttons. When a button is pressed, Telecenter U status lights activate in the hallway notifying staff and students that a room needs to be cleaned, or that it has been cleaned.

A cleaning request also can be activated through the Telecenter U online user interface and includes audio prompts to remind and notify janitorial staff to clean classrooms. Event history reporting tracks when and how often rooms are cleaned.
