A better understanding of the relationship between school conditions and students' academic performance could engender major support for improving the quality of the learning environment. An important step in improving conditions in the learning environment is a routine inspection and evaluation program. Such inspections typically focus on identifying and mitigating risks to the health and safety of school occupants, but the data generated could also be used to examine the relationships between school conditions, students' health and safety, and academic performance. This chapter presents an approach to routine inspections.

Keywords:   school conditions, routine school inspections, inspection programs, school evaluation, student health and safety, academic performance
