SCHOOL DISTRICT VENTILATION SYSTEMS

Our Facilities team works hard to ensure that all mechanical heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are designed, operated and maintained to help increase the amount of clean air entering our schools, classroom and other district sites. Our systems meet or exceed the recommended standards.  We continue to run our ventilation at full capacity, as we maximize the circulation of clean air at each school.

Please click on the link below to access overviews of the systems at each school and district site.
