Best Practice for Cleaning District Technology
This article provides guidelines for best practices for cleaning District Technology.
For technology equipment including computers and mobile devices (Laptops, Desktops, Chromebook, iPad, etc..) interactive whiteboards, TV’s and document cameras:
For basic cleaning, your STS has Windex Multisurface Vinegar cleaner and micro-fiber cloths, provided by the Technology Department. Additional cleaner and microfiber cloths will be supplied to STS’s from Technology upon request. Other chemical based cleaners, such as ammonia based “regular” windex, can damage the coating on surfaces. Spray the cleaner on the cloth, and use the lightly dampened cloth to clean the surface. Do not spray the cleaner directly on to computer keyboards or screens.
Staff should NOT use any other disinfectants or sanitizers on technology equipment unless directed to do so by Technology Staff or District Administration.
Other Tips & Resources:
- Encourage students to wash hands or use hand sanitizer before/after technology use.
