* Utilize data tracking and evaluation strategies to develop a business case, a value proposition and a communication strategy that generate broader acceptance of, compliance with and funding for green cleaning.
* Design and successfully implement a strategy to identify, collect and use data with low-cost, easy-to-use tools (e.g., the School IAQ Assessment Mobile App [ https://www.epa.gov/iaq-schools/school-iaq-assessment-mobile-app?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ]) to make the case for green cleaning approaches.
* Track such technical measures as return on investment; the results of surface adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing; asthma incidence, attendance rates and other important health and performance measures; reductions in occupant complaints; and improvement in IAQ.
* Replicate the strategies used by school districts that have successfully developed and implemented green cleaning programs to reduce costs and improve health by using the Communicate and Evaluate Key Drivers of the “IAQ Tools for Schools” Framework [ https://www.epa.gov/iaq-schools/framework-effective-school-indoor-air-quality-management-key-drivers?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ].
