Suzanne, Unfortunatly I am not aware of any regulations for bacteria on surfaces in a school bathroom. The only guildlines I know of come from a book called "Environmental Engineering and Sanitation" by J. Salvato ( you should be able to find it at a university library). This book is a standard referance for environmental profesionals. In here it says that for an area near food preparation ( I suppose this could include bathrooms) there should be no more then 12 1/2 colonies per square inch of surface. I hope this is helpful.
