EPA Offers Website on Creating Healthy Indoor Air Quality in Schools

"Good IAQ contributes to a favorable environment for students, performance of teachers and staff and a sense of comfort, health and well-being. These elements combine to assist a school in its core mission — educating children."

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Tools for Schools Program offers a website dedicated to indoor air quality of schools. Its goal is to "promote a healthy learning environment at your school to reduce absenteeism, improve test scores and enhance student and staff productivity."

The site offers sections on Adopting Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Best Practices for schools as well as timely information on Supporting Healthy Indoor Environments in Schools During COVID-19 Pandemic. Visit epa.gov.iaq-schools.
