MCPS Ventilation Report

Staff from the Division of Maintenance and Operations is currently in the process of upgrading the air filters in the mechanical systems of all MCPS schools. This ongoing project also includes installing air cleaners in the facilities that have HVAC systems that require supplemental measures for air ventilation.

According to the chart provided Greenwood is⧫⧫⧫ = Schools with recently replaced systems that have enhanced ventilation (limited spaces require air cleaners)

These schools have varying HVAC systems but generally have systems that can achieve ventilation and filter modifications to meet indoor air quality recommendations. Most of these systems have DOAS equipment and/or classroom units that achieve higher levels of ventilation air, and at rates that meet current recommendations. The schools in this category without DOAS equipment have classroom units that can modulate higher levels of ventilation airflow directly within the classroom HVAC unit and then ultimately mixed and distributed with filtered classroom air. Much of this work will not be visible, but we have have limited spaces with individual air cleaners.

Equity Hubs

https://www.equityhubs.org/

Addressing the childcare need in our county, while schools remain in a virtual environment is a huge need in our county.  Equity Hubs is specifically for students (of financially impacted families) who may not have internet access and/or adequate adult supervision to ensure successful distance learning. As these Hubs launch, there is a specific area of need, right up the PTA/community alley!  These students in the hubs need higher quality headphones (similar to link) than those the young scholars bring with them or are currently available through the schools.

If you or members of your PTAs are interested, your tax deductible donation can be made through this link!  Just indicate “headphone fund” as the purpose in the comments! https://www.thecommunityfoundation.org/childrensopportunityfund  If there are organizations interested in adopting an entire hub or cohort of students, and for paperwork purposes it is easier to buy the headphones directly and deliver, we can make that happen!

Several hubs already open as well as some that are “coming soon.”  Also, a registration link is available you are welcome to pass along for families that could benefit from being part of one of these cohorts!

Please see the Minutes page for a flyer of this program.
