Mold, Radon, and Lead in Schools: 1,000 Hours Grant Workshop
Event Description

In a year, a student will spend an average of 1,000 hours within a school building. Creating the healthiest, safest school building for students is GBA's highest priority as school facility professionals. 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.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify common facility interest areas, pain points, and foci that relate to the experience of facility personnel. 
  • Share best practices and common misunderstandings  
  • Establish connections with other people in their field that are having similar experiences for increased support  
  • Develop a series of action steps upon the end of the workshop to apply in their own school settings.
