The campaign is designed to quadruple the number of maintenance workers in each school for one week, said William Castro, GPSS acting Associate Superintendent for Administrative Services.
He said workers are being pulled from throughout the public schools and concentrated on a single district at a time for the effort.
"Like any initiative, you're going to have your bumps in the road," Castro said, adding that the schools were notified about two weeks in advance."I'll be surprised if we didn't learn from this in the next rush."
Castro said the school system relies primarily on school administrators to work with respective parent-teacher organizations and others in the community to procure needed materials.

Wil Castro, who climbed the GPSS ladder from a social studies teacher to chief planner and beyond in only two years, said yesterday that he has accepted a job at the Northern Marianas College in Saipan.
Castro will leave his current position as acting associate superintendent of Vocational/Technology Education on Feb. 29.At the position, Castro said he has worked to expand vocational training in local schools, in preparation for the skilled labor demand of the coming military build up.
A replacement hasn't been named.
"If there is one thing I am proud I was able to accomplish in last 90 days ... it was raising public awareness for voc-tech," he said.
In Saipan, Castro will work as the director of Institution Effectiveness, whose job it is to assess if the school is meeting its goals.Castro said the school was recently giving a "show cause" warning by the accrediting commission of the Western Associated of Schools and Colleges, which is the final step before academic probation.
"I understand their will be a lot of work to do there," Castro said.
Castro said he does plan to return to educate on Guam, since he enjoyed his work at GPSS and his career goal is to teach at the University of Guam.
Will Castro is leaving?
There are lots of problems at GPSS, but the trajectory of Wil Castro has little to do with them.It has more to do with salesmanship, lack of mentoring of our young talent and a lack of school-focus in our administration of the schools.
Wil was never really a teacher in the schools and he never worked at any school in any capacity.He was not mentored because as he told us all so often he was well-educated and he had all the knowledge already.He was a consumate salesman and many fell for it.
He is still a talented person, but he has gone down a career path that will never lead to any achievement or accomplishment.Given our current role models of leadership I guess it is predictable.
Wil, spend time in a school.... work in the trenches .... know what it is like to teach and manage instruction before you try to be something big in the world.

"The passage of the success criteria for program review is a major step for the college because it allows the college community to evaluate what it is we accomplished in the first cycle," said Wil Castro, PROAC chair and director of NMC's Office of Institutional Effectiveness.
