Not all staff are potty-trained

There was a time when the District was much more advanced when it came to custodial inspections. We would routinely use a black light to identify problem areas that were in need of greater attention. Of course, the health of building occupants was the highest priority and reducing sick days for staff and children helped the organization perform their mission more effectively.

While the standard of cleanliness has remained as high as always, the technique for identifying problems seems to have slipped to a more primitive approach. Designees now go out to schools to urinate on bathroom floors and return the next day to confirm that it has been cleaned. Surely, they have better things to do with their time and urine than to create more custodial issues for under-staffed facilities. Such practices have no place in the Edmonds School District.

The information contained in this blog has been verified by staff but it still constitutes an allegation. This blog welcomes any official response to this allegation and will post such a response when received.

You've got to be kidding. This is unacceptable. Does Snohomish Health District know?

Sounds like a Bellevue thing.

If that isn't a conflict of interest , I don't know what is. He should't be able to inspect his own pee.
One or the other Buddy! What HR should do, is create a new position for a "Lead Night Pee Specialist", and let the former pee guy just shuffle paperwork, with a bottle of GermX close by. Naturally,there would have to be a new supervisor position created to oversee all of this mess. And I've got your man. Oh yeah Baby. Just across I-5. Another slant on this might be to gather up some of that, and send the sample to the disticts own Healthworks, for urinalysis. Maybe at that point we could find out just what chemical composition it takes to short circuit that Trainwreck on his shoulders.

This must fall under the District's description "other doodies as assigned".

Hmm, I wonder what parents think of adults urinating on their children's shoes?

This must have been performed by a management yes man - any staff person would have too much integrity to carry-out such a ludicrous act.

Which also helps support that Americans have the most expensive urine in the World.
