Standard Ventilation Measures Report

School Board Ventilation Strategy | SNCDSB

Board Ventilation Strategy

  • Bring all our systems to meet ASHRAE 62.1 guidelines which increases our fresh air supply to all classrooms.
  • Ultraviolet light air purifying for all our air handling systems which removes all pathogens from the air stream.
  • Upgrade all filters to Merv13 or better which increases the effectiveness of filtration in the air stream.
  • Running ventilation systems longer during the school day which ensures sufficient fresh air is coming into the school. 

Ventilation: Increasing the flow of outdoor/fresh air for diluting the concentration of any infectious particles.

Filtration: Involves the use of different types of fibrous media designed to remove particles from the airstream.
