School Environmental Health
The State of Ohio passed state regulations known as Jarod’s Law in 2008 and in 2010, the law was rescinded. Schools are inspection by the Health District upon request. The Defiance County General Health District has developed a local guideline with assistance from the Ohio Department of Health and Defiance County Prosecutor.
DCGHD School Environmental Health and Safety Guidelines
Our goal is to ensure that school environments are constructed and maintained to protect health, safety, and the welfare of the students, school employees and the general public. The goal is achieved through the inspection process and the education of school administrators, custodians, and teachers. For more information on the guidelines, please contact the health district at 419-784-3818
