Indoor Environmental Quality

HCPSS recognizes the importance of providing a healthy learning environment for all students and staff members. In an effort to identify and correct conditions that may have an impact on air quality, HCPSS has established an Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) program that proactively maintains proper indoor environments and responds to community members' concerns.

The IEQ data provided below comes directly from the HCPSS IEQ site.

Submit an IEQ Concern

Scheduled Walk-Throughs

The IEQ program includes system-wide scheduled and standardized walk-through reviews of each HCPSS school, conducted twice a year. The process is based off the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Indoor Air Quality recommendations for schools. One walkthrough is conducted by a school-based IEQ team of parents, staff, students, and community members, trained by the HCPSS Office of the Environment, to identify and report potential indoor environmental issues. The second walkthrough is performed by an HCPSS industrial hygienist, who assesses each school building, such as its mechanical equipment, areas above drop-ceilings, and the exterior.

IEQ Information From Previous School Years

All previously published IEQ concerns, reports from external contractors, and school walk-through reports for previous school years are archived on the IEQ Report Archive.

Water Quality Reports

In compliance with state regulations, HCPSS is testing all schools for the presence of lead in drinking water. Details on the testing schedule, procedures, etc., as well as test results and reports for individual schools can be found on the HCPSS website.

Additionally, the water for this school is provided by a well and is tested for quality and lead.
