Air Quality Updates for BSES

about 1 month ago


Granville County Public Schools is committed to the safety and well-being of its students and staff.  All school facilities are being tested for air quality by an independent, certified laboratory.  The results of these tests are posted to the website below and any additional action steps will be communicated to all members of the school community.

The HVAC renovation project has been completed ON TIME, and ON BUDGET!

On August 17, LRC conducted air quality tests following the renovation of the HVAC system in the main building of the school.  All results indicated a normal indoor fungal ecology with the exception of three samples, which may have been impacted by the introduction of outside air during the test.  The spore counts on these samples was still less than the outside air on this day.  We will continue to monitor and retest air quality throughout the school.


The latest random air quality tests completed on May 21, 2018 show a normal indoor air ecology.  The reports are listed below.  This will be the final testing before renovations to our HVAC system begin this summer.  Testing will resume after this work is complete.

2018 Spring Air Quality Testing has begun, and the latest round of testing shows good results.  See below for report for testing conducted on 4-25-18:

Good news!  The results from the tests taken on November 14 show all clear.  Below are the official results:
