In 2019, Shakopee Public Schools experienced a large outbreak of influenza, with more than 5% of the student body missing school in a week. Innovative’s partnership enabled the school district to have an immediate, proactive response. Working together, the team developed a plan that included:
- Alternative products to enhance safety
- Additional training to ensure proper use of systems
- Supplemental protocols
The plan impacted the cleanliness in the buildings which in turn supported the health of students and decreased the absenteeism rate. Because of Shakopee’s trusted partnership with Innovative, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the combined team was, once again, prepared to work together to identify the best products and protocols to combat the virus. The solution included new cleaning protocols which led to enhanced chemicals and more frequent cleaning to protect the safety of students, staff, and visitors.
