School Planning and Design

High Performance NY CHPS Schools Guidelines 

Superior to CA CHPS Guidelines, the NY CHPS Guidelines are vocal about prevention of mold and moisture intrusion, promoting building designs that produce good indoor air quality and health!

From the Healthy Schools Network, a major victory in mold prevention for future schools, incorporated into healthy school design guidelines in NY state
 

High Performance Schools Guidelines

Healthy & High Performance School Design

Our goal is to help shape initiatives that will transform the built environment to include health and learning benefits for all children.  Healthy and High Performance schools improve children’s health, energy efficiency, and teacher and school staff job satisfaction, enhance student performance, and provide a healthier environment for building occupants.

In 2006, NYSERDA (The NYS Energy Research and Development Authority) and the NYS Education Department released NY-CHPS, comprehensive healthy and high performance school design guidelines for NYS schools. Healthy Schools Network worked to bring the NYS Education Department and NYSERDA together to create these guidelines and then served as an advisor to the project during its development.

These guidelines were adopted in Feb., 2007 and are now available at http://www.emsc.nysed.gov/facplan/NYSERDA/NY-CHPS_Ver_1.1_Feb_07.html.
