How Clark County Schools Improved Indoor Air Quality

Doug Diaz, Director of Facilities Optimization for Clark County School District, shares how he improved indoor air quality at the fifth largest school district

Students learn better when they are comfortable. With a goal of providing safer and healthier environments for the students and staff, the Clark County School District started addressing indoor air quality even before the COVID-19 pandemic. So when the pandemic hit, the district already had a head start towards recovery.

In our indoor air quality "Ask the Expert" event, Doug Diaz, director of Facilities Optimization for Clarke County School District, shared his experiences replacing more than 50,000 air filters, including upgrading MERV-8 filters to MERV-13 filters; repairing outdoor air intakes and cleaning coils; replacing carpet that harbors dust and pollen; and even improving IAQ in portable classrooms.

Clarke County School District is the fifth largest school district in the country, with 7,910 square miles that include the city of Las Vegas. The district has more than 304,000 students in 370 schools and 44 administrative facilities with more than 38 million square feet of space.
