Rebuilding New York’s Schools through Partnerships

The Reopen and Rebuild America’s Schools Act of 2021 invests $130 billion to help reopen public schools, provide students and educators a safe place to learn and work, and identify strategies to rebuild our schools for the future. Creating the optimal conditions for learning requires product solutions designed to address the unique needs of educational spaces: optimal acoustics, air quality, natural lighting, and aesthetics work together to impact how students understand teachers, stay focused, and even perform on tests. This session is an insight into best practices, as well as how to succeed with implementation, which is critical to secure the future of New York’s schools and all who use them.
