This month we welcome the district’s Environmental Health & Safety team to discuss improvements being made to processes related to the health and safety of students, teachers, and staff–such as Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

One of the challenges faced by Environmental Health & Safety is that both their department–which is responsible for identifying health and safety issues and prescribing the remedy for such issues–reports to the same chief executive (Facilities Chief Leo Bobadilla) as do the departments responsible for executing the remedy–PPO and/or some combination of the program managers and facilities staff. This lack of separation of duties between the departments creates a situation where one person–Leo Bobadilla–is responsible for ensuring health and safety issues are identified and resolved.  Is it possible to hold oneself accountable for not resolving issues in a timely manner?

This month’s agenda includes a link to BTU’s mold survey results. Over 700 teachers responded to the survey. We’ll look at whether schools today are reporting the same issues reported in the 2002 Grand Jury report, especially those management claimed were resolved in the 2012 Internal Audit followup report.

 

Welcome to the Facilities Task Force Website

To better serve its members and the public, the Broward County Public Schools Facilities Task Force began developing this website in February 2015.

Currently the website is used primarily to house information pertaining to our monthly and special meetings–including agendas, minutes, audio recordings, and related documents. Click on 2014-2015 Meeting Schedule to view the current meeting schedule, and agendas to view the agendas for the current year to date.  Minutes, audio recordings, and related documents are available by month from the meetings drop down menu.

The Task Force will continue to update and improve its website over the coming months.
