School Inspection Program

Both private and public primary and secondary schools are required to be inspected, on a semi-annual basis, by The Ohio Revised Code, Section 3707.26. This program is employed to ensure that necessary and routine maintenance programs are implemented and upgraded. In addition, safety issues are addressed as soon as possible to provide a safe, clean, and healthy environment that is conducive to creating an atmosphere for the greatest degree of academic achievement and standards.


Areas of inspection include, but are not limited to: classroom conditions, lighting standards, water supply, toilet and locker room facilities, ventilation systems, kitchen areas, playground equipment, swimming pools, insect and rodent control, accident prevention, condition and operation of windows and doors, traffic safety, stairwells and halls, fire exits and equipment, etc.
