Welcome to Sherwood School District’s (SSD’s) Healthy Schools page!
Our partner Sherwood Charter School maintains their own Healthy and Safe Schools Plan on their website (see links below).
Thanks to Sherwood residents a voter approved general obligation bond passed in November 2016. The Sherwood School District utilizing bond funds has been able to conduct deferred maintenance construction on several district buildings. During the course of construction the Sherwood School District contracts environmental services by our partner vendors to determine a variety of needs such as; indoor air quality tests and building material content verification. Environmental reports will be posted (see links below).
Sherwood School District has eight facilities; Sherwood High School, Sherwood Middle School, Ridges Elementary, Archer Glen Elementary, Middleton Elementary and Hawks View Elementary schools, the District Office building and Transportation (Cipole) building.
SSD contracts with PBS Environmental to perform required inspections of the Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools per regulations. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) are the authorities that regulate asbestos and the ACM’s are regularly inspected and maintained in compliance with EPA and DEQ regulations. Sherwood School District takes actions consistent with DEQ and EPA guidelines to ensure the health and safety of students and staff.

Lead Paint Information
The Renovation, Repair and Painting Program Rule requires that individuals and firms conducting renovation, repair and painting projects on pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities (child care and schools) be certified to follow lead-safe work practices. For more information on this rule, you can visit the following website: Oregon Health Authority (OHA)
In order to comply with the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Program (RRP) Rule, Sherwood School District will utilize district staff that are certified to perform RRP work. The district maintenance department has a designated lead paint specialist who is EPA RRP certified and is responsible for in-house repairs and painting.
In the case of large scale painting or renovation projects involving contractors the district will contract only with RRP certified contractors.
Painted or coated surfaces in work areas impacted by renovation, repair, and painting activities are tested for lead on a case by case basis.

Water Quality Testing
