Creating ideal classroom environments: the impact of indoor air quality (IAQ)
The impact of indoor air quality (IAQ) on K-12 student learning has been a topic of study for decades. Researchers have found that creating a well-ventilated classroom is critical for learning and student health. Providing students with a comfortable, quality environment can have a significant impact on student performance, health and attendance.
This whitepaper explores findings from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California and the University of California-Davis after studying over 100 classrooms across 11 schools that have been retrofitted with efficient HVAC equipment. Additionally, the whitepaper shares ten fundamental building factors that influence health and performance.
