• Research shows a positive relationship exists between school conditions and student achievement and behavior. Well-designed, well-kept facilities send a powerful message to kids about the importance a community places on education. Students and staff thrive in an orderly, clean, and safe environment. Classrooms that are well ventilated, suitably lighted, and properly maintained actually facilitate learning.
