Spartanburg Regional Foundation Contributes to the SCSDB’s Healthy Schools Initiative

Spartanburg Regional Foundation is helping the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind expand its Healthy Schools Initiative through a recent grant award.

The grant provides funds for two Clorox Total 360 Systems to clean and sanitize classrooms, nursing stations, and buses. The school’s maintenance department tried a 360 System earlier this year and found it to be effective in cleaning multiple surfaces beyond the department’s usual deep cleaning. The system can be used to spray desks, beds, walls, floors, and bus seats – virtually any surface that could potentially carry germs.

“The Spartanburg Regional Foundation has been a long-time partner in health with the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind,” said Ann Akerman, chief executive officer of the school’s foundation. “We are so thankful for their commitment to the health of the Spartanburg community and the surrounding area including our students.”

The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind is the state’s specialized school for students who are deaf or blind. It offers pre-kindergarten – grade 12 educational programs on its main campus in Spartanburg and specialized vision and hearing services in school districts and homes throughout the state.
