WILTON, Conn. — The Wilton Board of Education is set to review a proposal from TRC Environmental Corp. Inc. to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the indoor air quality at Miller-Driscoll School.

The indoor air quality at Miller-Driscoll, the district’s oldest school, would be retested in response to concerns expressed by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association, Superintendent Gary Richards announced last month.

“Identifying and hiring an independent indoor air quality consultant will allow us to provide the community with the in-depth analysis that the superintendent has recommended,” board Chairman Bruce Likly said.  “TRC has no history with this district, and if approved by the BOE, will use its expertise to provide an objective analysis of air quality at Miller-Driscoll.”

The board will review the Windsor-based company’s proposal and credentials at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the Wilton High School Professional Library.

It is possible the board will also approve a contract with TRC during the meeting, Likly said.

“Once a contract is in place, work can begin to fully re-assess air quality at Miller-Driscoll,” he said.

The public is welcome to attend Tuesday’s meeting. It will also be broadcast on cable Channel 78. More information about TRC is available on the district website.

In addition to indoor air quality, radon levels at Miller-Driscoll will be retested from Feb. 19 to Feb. 21. This test will be conducted by EnviroPlan, a subcontractor of Cardno ATC.

EnviroPlan will also retest radon levels at Wilton's three other schools between March 5 to March 7.
