School leaders are working around the clock to provide healthy, safe learning environments as the world recovers from the devastating impacts of COVID-19. The WELL Health-Safety Rating is helping schools re-open the right way by providing a seamless experience backed by evidence-based solutions as well as third-party verification. Hear about emerging innovations and research regarding how we can design and update school buildings specifically to support the health and well-being of students, teachers, staff, and visitors. Discover lessons learned from the Upper St. Clair School District during their pursuit and achievement of the WELL Health-Safety Rating. Join us to learn how this critical, efficient and cost-effective solution for school leaders is providing the tools and resources they need to independently verify their buildings and reopen with confidence.
