Another layer of pandemic protection is coming to College Station ISD schools.
That’s after the CSISD board at December’s meeting approved the recommendation from chief financial officer Amy Drozd to place portable air filtration machines in 2,000 classrooms.
Drozd told the board that the devices are expected to reduce the spread of coronavirus, the flu, and other illnesses
The $613,000 dollar purchase, from pandemic grant money, includes 1,500 replacement filters.
Drozd says another pandemic grant source could be used to offset a possible $75,000 dollar annual cost for filters.
The machines are expected to be delivered the first part of next month.
