In the continued fight against COVID-19, ESC Region 13 is offering Air Filtration Systems to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and Private Schools to protect staff, students, and campus visitors. Air filtration reduces learning loss, increases attendance, and improves academic performance.
- VENTILATION & THINKING Researchers observed a 5%decrease in “power of attention” in poorly ventilated classrooms, roughly equivalent to the impact that a student might feel from skipping breakfast. (Coley et al, 2007)
- VENTILATION & HEALTH The number of upper respiratory symptoms and high rates of missed school days were significantly associated with inadequate ventilation and dampness or moisture damage in a study of 4,248 sixth grade students from 297 schools. (Toyinbo et al, 2016)
- VENTILATION & ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT Students in classrooms that received portable mechanical ventilation systems interventions performed faster and more accurately on computerized tasks. (Bako'-Biro' et al, 2011)
In a study of 70 elementary grade classrooms and 3,109 students, math test scores increased by 11 points with additional ventilation. (Park, 2016)
