Cleaning regional schools

  • DETclean (staff login required) — the Department’s contract management software system. The online tool has been developed to help both regional schools and cleaning contractors manage their cleaning contracts. It ensures schools and cleaning contractors comply with school cleaning contracts. Schools can login to DETclean to access school supporting documents such as user guides and templates.
  • School council agreement for the provision of cleaning services (staff login required) — a template contract for school councils to use to formalise their arrangements with their selected cleaning contractor.
