GRAFTON SCHOOL DISTRICT

INDOOR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT (IEQ) PLAN

ANNUAL NOTIFICATION – 2016-17 School Year

An Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Management Plan, for all building in the Grafton School District, is available for public inspection. This inspection must be done, by appointment only, during regular business hours at the office of the Buildings and Grounds Director. Please give at least one (1) working days’ notice to view this plan. Any request to view the plan will be honored by the designated IEQ Coordinator for the District’s facilities within five (5) working days of the receipt of such a request.

Copies of the document are available from the district office at a cost of $1.00 for the first page and 25 cents per page thereafter, upon five (5) days’ written request. 

The Indoor Environmental Quality in Schools Task Force (IEQ Task Force) was created by the 2009 Wisconsin Act 96. The purpose of the task force was to make recommendations to the State Superintendent for the development of a model management plan for maintaining indoor environmental quality. This included best management practices, indoor environmental quality training requirements for school district or private employees (who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of schools), educational materials relating to indoor environmental quality in schools, and model specifications for the design and construction of school facilities or additions to school facilities. 

As required in WI Stat. 118.075 (3) and (4), the School District maintains IEQ in school with measures that include quality heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, moisture control, integrated pest management, cleaning and maintenance schedules, appropriate materials selection, routine building inspections by maintenance personnel, appropriate training of staff, and communication.

Reporting

The school district encourages the prompt reporting and resolution of any and all IEQ concerns. Its goal is to provide a health and comfortable environment for students, staff and visitors, and avoid unnecessary costs related to the neglect of IEQ issues.

All IEQ concerns shall be submitted in writing on the IEQ Concern Form to the IEQ Coordinator. This form is electronically available to administrative staff on the school district website. 

A copy of the IEQ Management Plan is available for review by contacting the Director of Buildings & Grounds, Mr. Jamie Scofield. Questions related to this plan should be directed to the designated IEQ Coordinator for the District’s facilities, who can be reached at 262-376-5716.

It is our policy to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and our staff members.
