Clark County Public Health School Health and Safety Program reviews the proposed locations and building plans for all K-12 public, private and parochial school construction projects to ensure minimum environmental health standards are met. This review complements a building department review in that the review considers a school’s proposed classroom use and determines appropriate health and safety measures. The program also reviews items not requiring building department approval, such as playground equipment. Program approval is required before building permits and/or certificates of occupancy are issued.
We recommend contacting the School Health and Safety program before purchasing or leasing a new location or submitting for a new project. Pre-application meetings can be completed individually or in conjunction with the building department. Email us to schedule a meeting.
