2011-2012 Winter Testing

 Following District Protocol regarding radon testing for DCSD school buildings, the Buildings and  Maintenance Department deployed radon testing kits at most DCSD sites to determine radon levels in a random selection of rooms. 

For Sites that had renovation or construction completed in the last year, the number of rooms tested will be more than normal to establish a revised baseline affected by construction.  Gardnerville Elementary School was not tested during this round, as they are currently undergoing major construction, and testing will not be necessary until construction is complete.
