Air and Surface Pathogen Safety has always been a concern for schools. In today’s COVID-era environment, the requirement for continuous pathogen reduction is an immediate need. Beyond the current moment, we know that sick-building syndrome, asthma, and respiratory illness are key drivers of student and absence. In this research-based webinar, we review emerging technologies – from NASA-developed strategies to nanotechnology – that bring medical-grade environmental protection to the school learning environment.

Like hospitals, schools are under increasing pressure to ensure an environment as free from airborne illnesses as possible. What is a “safe and healthy environment”? While the Corona Virus crisis is a current “hot topic”, asthma and cold / flu related absences represent the primary reasons for students and staff to miss school.

Join Kevin Baird, Chairman of the nonprofit Center for College and Career Readiness, as we explore:
Factors to consider when evaluating furniture for various students’ needs
Durability and Functionality by age group
Modernization for all school buildings
Planning over time
Purchasing Agreements and Money Saving Contracts
