Structural stability assessment of 1267 school buildings was carried out using the Rapid Visual Screening (RVS) procedure according to the provisions of FEMA P-154, 2015. “Rapid Visual Screening of Buildings for Potential Seismic Hazards”. The RVS procedure uses a methodology based on reviewing the building drawing followed by a sidewalk survey of a building and a Data Collection Form, which the person conducting the survey completes, based on visual observation of the building. The Data Collection Form includes space for documenting building identification information, including its use and size, a photograph of the building, sketches, and documentation of pertinent data related to seismic performance. Based on the data collected during the survey, a score is calculated that indicates the expected seismic performance of the building.
