A school building is a system. The proper materials, design, construction and maintenance of the system's components are critical to the success and health of its students and staff.  

Starting on Sept. 10, CHPS will be hosting a 10-part webinar series called School Building Science Fridays. Sessions will be held the second Friday of each month through June 22. They’ll feature expert panelists and participant discussion on the science behind designing, building and maintaining healthy, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly schools. 

The series will begin with: 

September – Intro & Overview: What is School Building Science and what does it mean for you?
