CHPS Releases New CHPS PreFAB Program and Pre-Approves First Model
The CHPS PreFAB program provides a streamlined process for pre-approving prefabricated modular classroom models that meet the CHPS Criteria rating system for healthy, high performance schools.
New US-CHPS Criteria
The new US-CHPS Criteria™ is a companion to and based on the CHPS National Core Criteria (Core Criteria). US-CHPS is a version of the CHPS Criteria rating system that can be used in every state and the District of Columbia. New states may adopt US-CHPS for K-12 schools as is, or may add code requirements and/or additional relevant resources without an intensive development process or additional public review.
