    CISB's Indoor Air Quality

    We take our indoor air quality very seriously and have implemented a number of measures to ensure our CISB community is breathing safe air. These measures include:

    • Installation of a new, automatic air purification system providing fresh, clean, monitored air directly into each classroom
      Installation of Pureliving’s Air Filtration system throughout the campus (hallways, classrooms, gymnasiums, cafeteria, pools, etc…)
    • Air purifiers installed on all buses
    • Regular monitoring of indoor air quality
    • Air Quality protocols that restrict door access on bad air days, determine if and when windows can be opened when air purifiers must be on and for how long as well as when students are prevented from going outside (see our ‘Policies’ link for more detail)
    • Air-pressurized doubled-door entrances/exits
    • Sealed windows throughout campus
