LEED for Schools recognizes that acoustics is an important element of indoor
environmental quality. Acoustical issues are relevant to all building types;
however, the acoustic performance is only required by LEED for Schools, as
teachers can’t teach and students can’t learn in noisy classrooms.

Better acoustics can be accomplished by:

Using sound absorbing materials made from recycled products
Using white noise to mask other sounds
Avoiding the use of small diameter ducts with high velocity airflow, as
these ducts tend to be noisier
Designing rooms with privacy and concentration in mind, such as study
rooms in libraries
Enclosing or separating spaces where privacy and concentration is
important
