By unanimous vote, Ohio’s Loveland City school board selected LJB Inc. to guide the Loveland City School District’s reopening plans for the 2020-2021 school year.
Using its combination of pandemic planning and engineering expertise, LJB’s team developed a Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) for each of the district’s six schools. The team assessed the district’s existing reopening plans and weighed factors—such as critical functions, building floor plans, and crucial resources—to develop the safety procedures, controls and training needed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
LJB recommended health and safety controls to provide the highest degree of protections for teachers, staff, and students—while balancing the needs of all. This work required an intensely collaborative process between LJB, administration, staff, and educator representatives to develop and design healthy and safe learning environments.
