The Kentucky state school facilities program establishes and enforces uniform sanitary standards for schools necessary to ensure a safe and healthy environment. Inspections are conducted by local
health department environmentalists at least twice each year with follow ups and complaint investigations as necessary.
To register a complaint concerning a school, please contact your local health department.
Plans for new school construction and modifications to existing schools must be submitted to local health departments.
Guidelines for School Plan Submittal
- Three sets of plumbing plans and three
plan application forms are submitted to the local health department. Note: four sets of plans are required if the water source is private.
- The local health department reviews the plans and forwards approved plans to the
Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction (DHBC) for further review and approval.
- Approved plans are returned to the local health department with an approval letter. Plans not approved are returned to the local health department with a deficiency letter.
