|LPA Angel Richards arrived at the facility to conduct a Case Management Visit regarding the facility's request to temporarily add a classroom (pod 500) to the license. Upon arrival LPA met with Director Samara White. There are 79 children in care. |
An application for the temporary room addition was received on 6/25/15. The granted Fire Clearance was received on 8/10/15.
LPA toured the pod area. The pod area is an enclosed space that is located between 4 classrooms. In this space there are computers and tables available. The facility understands that they are responsible to ensure the space is in compliance with regulations even though it's on a school site. The facility utilizes the school playgrounds, school drinking fountains, and school bathrooms. The facility is planning to utilize the pod area as a backup space in the case that their other rooms (room 201, 208, the library, and a portion of the multipurpose room) need to be inaccessible during the preparation for the school year through 8/28/15. This site is providing summer care at this time and the regular school year starts on 9/2/15.
No corrections are needed, the pod area will be added to the license effective today.
No deficiencies cited. A Notice of Site Visit must be posted for 30 days.
