Go back to school/collage and find a different job. Being a custodian is more than sweeping and mopping. Repairs need done, gym equipment needs moved around, doors need locked or unlocked for someone. You need people skills and child background checks. Knowledge of equipment, cleaning solutions, maintenance, alarms, where everything is stored, what sporting, musical or academic event is going on, and the requirements for that particular event. The different seasons need different maintenance, summer cleaning, snow removal, grass cutting, pool maintenance, football, baseball and soccer fields, all require different maintenance.
