CHPS Criteria and best practices for prefabricated school buildings update

Sacramento, CA - February 1, 2016 - The Collaborative for High Performing Schools (CHPS) is pleased to announce the updating of the CHPS Criteria and best practices for prefabricated school buildings thanks to the generous support of American Modular Systems (AMS) and Bard Manufacturing Company, as Presenting Sponsors. The update is guided by an ad hoc subcommittee of the CHPS National Technical Committee.

The CHPS Best Practices Manual (BPM) Prefabricated Classroom volume (VI) was developed in 2006 and last updated in 2009. This innovative resource provides tools for manufacturers, school districts and design teams to specify, build and acquire high performance relocatable classrooms.

This should cause the school community to carefully assess what is put in place - so here are some resources.
