Optimized school buildings can directly enhance student performance and create a thriving learning environment. Did you know that schools can see a 3 to 5 percent increase in student performance when considering student achievement and satisfactory versus unsatisfactory school building conditions?

Join us for a live discussion where Dr. John Bailey, Director of School Plants at Chesapeake Public Schools and Executive Director of NSPMA will walk you through how improved learning conditions, energy conservation and creative funding can all lead to an increase in student achievement.

Dr. Bailey will cover:

  • Ways to help money-strapped school districts generate revenue and manage utilities
  • The influence of adverse school building conditions on student learning, student behavior, and student attitude
  • Prioritizing building adequacy, including classroom temperature, indoor air quality, adequate lighting, proper ventilation, and more
  • School building conditions and the direct effect on student test scores
