MCPS Conducts Radiofrequency (RF) Monitoring

MCPS contracted with an independent consulting firm to record and assess radiofrequency emissions to address concerns raised about possible harmful radiation effects from wireless access points in our classrooms. The safety of exposure to radiofrequencies has been researched extensively. The weight of over 30 years of international research has not linked exposure to radiofrequency energy from mobile devices with any known health problems. MCPS remains committed to providing safe learning environments for students and staff. We will continue to thoroughly evaluate the safety and effectiveness of technologies we provide for our students and staff.
