Introduction and Mission Statement
The health, comfort and learning environment of students and staff are important aspects of ACPS’ mission. Working with our external environmental consultant and implementing the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “IAQ Tools for Schools” Program, we developed an IAQ Management Plan that will help monitor and improve the quality of air in school buildings. The plan also provides proactive measures that can be taken to improve air quality. The objectives of this IAQ Management Plan are:
- Reduce the levels of indoor air pollutants through preventive measures such as routine maintenance activities, periodic building evaluations, targeted indoor air quality sampling (as needed), inspections and IAQ-specific policies.
- Provide and maintain adequate airflow by repairing and maintaining ventilation equipment, which will promote a comfortable and healthy learning and working environment.
- Respond to IAQ-related concerns and problems in a prompt and thorough manner, and effectively communicate the progress of investigations and their resolution to all interested parties.
