School portable placement projects

The School Health and Safety Program portable plan review covers new or relocated portable classroom buildings that students will occupy for all K-12 public, private and parochial schools to ensure minimum environmental health standards are met. The review considers a school’s proposed classroom use and determines appropriate environmental health and safety measures. The number of fees assessed will be based on the number of unique plans submitted for review. There is a separate fee for the occupancy inspection(s) for each location associated with the project.
