Air Specialist

The Association of School Business Officials International has hired a district administrator from Washington state for its recently created position of indoor-air-quality specialist.

Dan Moberly, the former assistant superintendent of business services for the Kent, Wash., school district, began his new job this month. Mr. Moberly will work from his home in Washington and coordinate seminars across the country to help educate school administrators on strategies for improving air quality in schools.

The job is a two-year post, financed by a $740,000 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

ASBO officials said that in his new position, Mr. Moberly will help educate school business officials dealing with the rising number of issues related to poor indoor-air quality, such as asthma and other health problems in students.

Mr. Moberly addressed problems with air quality in a 1930s school in his district. He has since assembled a team of educators to study and improve air quality inside other schools in the 26,000-student district.

“He’s interested in results, understands the value of teamwork in solving problems, and has been a proven leader in dealing with and resolving air-quality issues,” said Ann Miller, the executive director of the Reston, Va.-based ASBO, in announcing the selection.

The Council of Educational Facility Planners International, based in Scottsdale, Ariz., has released a comprehensive new guide to help administrators plan and build schools.

The book, Creating Connections: The CEFPI Guide for Educational Facility Planning, focuses on best practices, strategies, and new trends for designing and building schools.

It was written to help administrators navigate the school-construction process, from finance to coping with the construction. It also gives advice on how to work with stakeholders to determine the needs for a new building.
