There are approximately 13,000 school districts in the United States that manage more than 100,000 public schools. According to the National Center for Education Statistics there are more than 65,000 elementary schools and 20,000 secondary schools serving our students. Add another 33,000 private schools and the square footage of commercial flooring can easily run into the billions.
Approximately 50 million students will attend public elementary and secondary schools in 2013. Slightly more than 35 million will be in prekindergarten through 8th grade and 14.8 million will be in grades 9 through 12. An additional 5.2 million students attend private schools.
The daily parade of these kids entering and leaving school and moving between classes takes a heavy toll on commercial flooring in hallways, gyms and common areas. Muddy shoes track in grit and sand that can churn away high gloss coatings.
