School Health and Safety Program


 Jefferson County Public Health’s School Health & Safety program reviews public, private and parochial K-12 school construction projects to ensure the health and safety of students and other school occupants. Our approval is required before building permits and/or certificates of occupancy are issued.

Jefferson County Public Health’s School Health and Safety program is involved in three stages of the school construction process:

  1. We review proposed K-12 school sites to ensure they do not present any health problems.
  2. We review school construction plans and specifications before construction.
  3. We conduct pre-occupancy inspections prior to use/
