Description

ANSI Approved
Approved American National StandardThis Recommended Practice was developed to enable school and college administrators to understand the importance of the role that lighting plays in educational environments, to be able to convey to architects and other designers the needs for appropriate provisioning of lighting, and enable architects, engineers, lighting designers, and other lighting decision-makers to ensure that their lighting criteria are consistent with good current practice. It addresses all levels of education, from preschool to continuing professional development. The scope of this Recommended Practice is restricted to learning and study activities and associated circulation areas. The IES Lighting Handbook, 10th Edition and latest versions of other IES Recommended Practices (RPs) should be consulted for guidance on lighting for other related spaces such as administration and sports, and strategies for daylighting, commissioning, and maintenance practices.
