The School Environmental Health Inspection Program ensures that the schools in Warren County are maintained in a safe and sanitary manner. The Ohio Revised Code requires the Warren County Combined Health District to inspect all school buildings at least twice each year for sanitary conditions and situations which may result in an immediate health risk. The Warren County Combined Health District works closely with school administrators in a partnership to ensure the health and safety of all students, staff and visitors in the public and private schools located in Warren County.

In 2013, the Warren County Board of Health adopted its own local School Environmental Health Regulations. These rules cover all aspects of the school environment including, but not limited to, the building grounds and building exterior, playgrounds, solid waste disposal areas, outdoor athletic facilities, building entrances and exits, HVAC systems, hallways and stairwells, classrooms, science rooms and laboratories, visual and industrial arts rooms, stage and set construction areas, auditoriums, custodial closets, mechanicals rooms, restrooms, and kitchens as part of the food safety program.
