TfS is an ongoing program. School districts that maintain their TfS have continued success in making improvements and educating staff, students and parents about how they can help maintain healthy school building environments. Each school year, the building teams should implement the process of documenting and assessing problems, prioritizing solutions, and working with the school administration to prevent and remediate problems. Don’t forget to communicate your findings and actions to the school community – we have ample evidence that this is a key to success. Schools often use the summer time to make larger improvements such as replacing roofs and upgrading HVAC systems. Maintaining your TfS program is important to preventing problems and keeping the school healthy. Another reason for maintaining your TfS program is the 2003 School IAQ law (PA 03-220). This law requires that schools have an indoor air program. TfS meets this requirement of the bill.
