DELIVERY TO SITES/DEPARTMENTS
Delivery to school sites and district office departments depends on the size and location of your district, warehouse/delivery staff, and adequate equipment for making deliveries.
A small to medium school district may be able to deliver materials, mail, and stores items on a daily basis while a large district will need a schedule with deliveries occurring every other day, Monday-Wednesday-Friday, or Tuesday-Thursday. Careful consideration will need to be used when setting up the delivery schedule.
The following are examples of delivery schedules for several districts in the San Diego County areas:
High School District (7200 ADA) Six Schools: 2 High Schools, 3 Junior High Schools, 1 Continuation High School, and Adult Education.
- Pick-up mail at Post Office
- Leave Warehouse, Deliver to Maintenance/Operations – Delivery Mail to High School #1
- Delivery Mail to Junior High School #1
- Delivery of Mail Only to High School #2 and Adult Education – Return to Warehouse
- Delivery to Transportation
- Deliver to Junior High School #2 – Delivery to Junior High School #3
- Delivery to District Office
- Take outgoing mail to Post Office
Mail for larger districts are usually done on a rotating basis. See Exhibit #DS-1 & 2. DS-1 is the schedule for delivery for a Unified School District of about 20,000 ADA. DS-2 is the schedule for delivery of all Elementary District of about 17,000 ADA.
Specialized Delivery Services:
Depending upon the number of delivery drivers a warehouse may have, specialized delivery services are often provided.
Some districts are responsible for providing deliveries of Food Service carts to satellite cafeteria locations. Drivers may also be required to pick up bank deposits to be forwarded to a central location for pick-up by either banking personnel or armored truck. Careful consideration must be made to insure safety of drivers picking up and delivering cafeteria funds.
Warehouse staff may also be required to relocate furniture and equipment from site to site. For example, a teacher moves from one location to another, or equipment/furniture is being transferred to surplus.
