Is the indoor air quality in my child's school safe?

Every type of building has the potential for poor IAQ, including schools. While some schools may have minor problems, others may have more significant issues. The IAQ TfS Action Kit provides the school staff with practical steps they can take to identify and correct current problems and prevent future problems. Awareness of the issues and proactive steps to ensure good IAQ will go a long way toward providing a safe and productive learning environment for children.
