    I'm not sure who does it here, but it's usually done straight after I've written something I need to remember on there.

    Better be teachers. I'm guessing you've been roped into this though :P

    On a related note, for those of you who come across a similar situation, ethanol cleans dry wipe marker off a Smartboard, which is lucky for one exam invigilator here.

    IT staff, only when permanent pen (where did it come from?!?!) has been used instead of a proper whiteboard pen.

    No I haven't been but our site manager and his caretaking staff have.

    The danger of anyone other than the teacher responsible cleaning them is that they could have pre-prepared stuff on it and then the cleaners or whoever come along and clean it all off before the next day as has happened in the past.

    I did take to printing out labels that couldn't be pealed off with "DO NOT WRITE ON THIS BOARD" written on and stuck them to the tops of all the IWBs in the school...
    They got the hint when I'd taken to hiding their marker pens... or gutting the ones that they thought they'd hidden well from me..!

    The teachers wipe them to write on the board on a daily basis, but they don't ever come out brilliant white. I think the cleaners give them a quick clean during the summer holidays, but it doesn't take look before they look black again once we return in September.
