EBBD – Indoor Air Quality

In order to ensure that all school buildings have adequate indoor air quality, the Board directs the Superintendent to address methods of minimizing or eliminating emissions from buses, cars, delivery vehicles, and other motorized vehicles. The Superintendent may delegate the implementation of these methods to the Facilities Director. The Board encourages the Superintendent to utilize methods and recommendations established by various State agencies.

In addition to addressing methods eliminating emissions, the Facilities Director is directed to annually investigate air quality in school buildings using a checklist provided by the New Hampshire Department of Education.

In support of this policy, the Superintendent is authorized to establish regulations and/or
administrative rules necessary to implement anti-idling and clear air measures aimed at
improving indoor air quality.
