January 29: District 15 Community Communication Forum

During the District 15 Board of Education’s December 10 meeting, the District’s architects presented the Board with the results of the District’s new 10-year life safety study that was performed on its facilities this summer.

Now, the Board is set to host four Community Communication Forums that will further detail the results of the survey and allow residents to provide their feedback.

Please join us on January 29 (Thursday) – 7PM at Winston Junior High for Community Communication Forums covering Lake Louise and other Winston Junior High feeder schools.

“These study results — as well as the input we receive from residents during these upcoming forums — will significantly shape the way our schools — our actual brick and mortar facilities — will look and function for the foreseeable future,” said Scott Thompson, Ed.D., District 15’s superintendent of schools. “They will completely rearrange the way all of our building maintenance and repair projects are prioritized, and, in doing so, will establish the work we will need to do and the challenges we will need to overcome over the course of the next several years.”

What is a Life Safety Study?
District 15’s facilities and buildings are required to maintain State Board of Education regulations within the School Building Code and the Health Life Safety Code, in addition to occupational safety standards of the Illinois Department of Labor. These codes are maintained and regulated through life safety projects, and these projects are determined by a survey of the District’s facilities by an architect and engineer.

Districts are required to conduct these surveys every 10 years, and report their results to the state. Items that are surveyed include roofs, asphalt, asbestos abatements and other environmental issues; plumbing and water safety concerns; necessary upgrades to lighting, boilers and heating/ventilation/air conditioning systems; and other projects to increase energy efficiency and safety in our buildings. Once a survey is completed, the projects are put into a prioritized list according to the Health Life Safety Code.
