The school system actively monitors and addresses environmental issues. For more information,
- Chesterfield County Public Schools proactively addresses indoor air quality concerns by conducting periodic inspections and placing work orders for building repairs when necessary.
- The school system’s program calls for testing for radon on every occupied ground floor room, including classrooms and offices. If an area is found to have a radon concentration of concern, the radon will
- be mitigated.
- An asbestos management plan is available for review in school offices.
- When it becomes necessary to control a pest problem, the school will use the least toxic products possible and will post notices 24 hours before applying pesticides. Parents who want to be notified in advance of pesticide use may ask the school to place their name on a registry. Exemptions to this notification include cleaners and disinfectants, baits and gels.
- To help keep Virginia waterways clean, school system employees and contractors do not put pollutants or other substances into outside drains and do not leave litter on the ground that could get washed into drains. Students and parents are asked to help protect waterways too.
