The School Facilities Required and Recommended Inspections Checklist has been developed by PASBO’s Facilities Committee.  This tool is designed to identify inspections – both required and recommended by regulatory agencies – for schools in Pennsylvania.  While the list is not exhaustive, it provides important information in order to comply with code and life safety requirements for schools.   Experts in the field of school operations and maintenance will provide vital information needed for all LEAs for compliance and the health and safety of students and staff.
