Safeguarding Student Health
& Performance with IAQ

Indoor air quality (IAQ) management and ventilation is important for all types of facilities – and most critically – schools. Even before to the pandemic, poor ventilation in schools posed a significant health risk to students. A recent 2020 UC Davis study found 85% of California classrooms lack proper ventilation which explicitly impacts student heath and learning. The study also found that increased ventilation rates contribute to:

  • Increased student performance
  • Improved respiratory health
  • Increased student attendance
  • Reduced airborne disease transmission
  • Increased Average Daily Class Attendance ( + future funding opportunities)
