The Schools of Illinois Public Cooperative (SIPC) was founded by school administrators as a means to address both the cost and effectiveness of school building maintenance.
True to our mission, the SIPC published an Intergovernmental Agreement for a complete, cost-managed Green Cleaning program.
The framework for the proposal was structured with the comprehensive IN-SITE for Education program.
SIPC’s Performance Driven App
A system that will design customized worker-training, along with systems innovation and improvement programs.
In-Site For Education
A total cost management solution designed to make educational facilities more efficient, healthier, and greener.
Inventory Management Solution creates a highly efficient storeroom with optimal inventory levels on key everyday products.
This revolutionary program provides value beyond reduced product cost – and addresses the most significant piece of facility maintenance budgets, by focusing on more efficient use of both labor and materials through new technologies and sustainable building practices.

IN-SITE for Education is an in-depth program that has reduced our overall custodial maintenance cost by 30%. I am a firm believer that SIPC membership and the IN-SITE for Education program can play an integral role in supporting any school district’s maintenance program.
Our schools anticipate saving tens of thousands of dollars per year by standardizing supplies and processes and look to gain valuable time in the workday by implementing more efficient equipment and practices. At the end of the day, our school district is 100% confident they have selected the best partner to assist us in improving the appearance, safety, and cleanliness of our schools.
Our school district believes that it is not only important to create a healthy school environment that improves air quality, which we believe is directly related to academic performance, but to reduce consumption of all natural resources as well as energy. The SIPC and SupplyWorks (now a division of The Home Depot) have together provided a customized training program through the IN-SITE for Education program to custodians and administrator in order to help school districts follow best practices and safety measures, implement eco-friendly cleaning methods and educate themselves on more efficient cleaning methods. It is refreshing to partner with a company who is dedicated to ensuring that the products they supply help to keep our buildings not only clean and safe but also help us strive for continuous improvement.
I am a firm believer that SIPC membership can play an integral part in any school’s maintenance program, with Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 being a prime example. Therefore, I invite other schools to do the same. I invite you to consider enjoining the SIPC and strongly encourage you to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss benefits of SupplyWorks In-Site for Ed program that will create a healthier and safer overall environment, increase the lifespan of your buildings, and drive your operational costs down.
