Indoor Air Quality Mission Statement
A healthy indoor environment is one in which the surroundings contribute to productivity, comfort and a sense of health and well being with our primary goal; educating students.
Round Rock ISD is committed to maintaining a healthy indoor environment conducive to learning, teaching, and working. The creation and management of a healthy indoor environment is dependent on proper planning and design of facilities, proactive strategies to control indoor contaminants, a timely response to indoor air quality issues, thorough field observation of those issues, and finally, a resolution to concerns.
Round Rock ISD Environmental Services in conjunction with Maintenance Department, Facilities and Construction, Energy Management, and Operations Departments will fulfill their responsibility to the students and staff of the district by working collaboratively to provide proper indoor air quality environments in our facilities.
The assistance of the EPA’s Tools for Schools program and the combined efforts of all district personnel, students, and parents will contribute to the success of our mission.
The EPA states “provision of good air quality requires a conscientious effort by both building staff and occupants.”
Indoor Air Quality Field Observation
Recognizing that indoor air quality issues can and do occur despite preventative measures and conscientious efforts by maintenance personnel and the building staff, the key to resolving these problems is a thorough and timely observation by competent personnel sensitive to the health concerns of the building staff and students.
The Environmental Compliance Specialist during field observation will properly review and observe the issue and complete follow up forms. During the observation the Environmental Compliance Specialist may consult with the campus principal and /or staff, maintenance, operations, and safety & risk personnel as needed. Additionally, the district has authorized the Environmental Compliance Specialist to retain the services of outside professionals should their assistance be required.
An IAQ field observation is triggered by contacting the Environmental Compliance Specialist directly or through the
Round Rock ISD Maintenance Department work order system.
Please contact our team with indoor air quality questions or concerns.
