In a year, a student will spend an average of 1,000 hours within a school building. Creating the healthiest, safest school building for our students is our highest priority as school facility professionals and within reach! Green Building Alliance and Women for a Healthy Environment join together in this workshop to present opportunities to address mold, radon, and lead in school buildings.
The 1,000 Hours Grant, with generous support from the Heinz Foundation, provides K-12 schools financial and technical assistance with testing and mitigating for lead and testing for radon. Learn how you can get started. Mold, a common occurrence in most buildings, can pose health risks to occupants and can signal problems with airflow systems. We will bring vetted mold professionals to advise on best mitigation strategies for your building.
Scholarships are available in an effort to make this program accessible to everyone and are given based on financial need.
