FMSD Installs Air Guardian System
FMSD Installs Air Guardian System
Posted on 07/29/2021

The Fort Mill School District will install Air Guardian air purification systems in all elementary and middle schools beginning in August, thanks to funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP). The legislation will award these grants to districts to address the impact that COVID-19 has had and continues to have on schools across the nation.

Air Guardian uses a five-step process to remove pathogens and other volatile organic compounds from the air. It is proven to kill 99% of COVID-19 within 13 seconds. It also purifies the air of dozens of other bacteria, viruses and molds. 

All Fort Mill School District schools meet current air quality standards. The Air Guardian system is a way for the schools to exceed those standards and provide the highest air quality possible for students and staff.

The FMSD received more than $5.1 million from the ARP-ESSER III allocation for needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Installation of the equipment will be ongoing throughout the school year.

High schools will be fitted with the Air Guardian systems with future funding allocations.
