What is EPA doing about Indoor Air Quality in Schools?

EPA's IAQ Tools for Schools Program is devoted to providing outreach products and services to schools to help them create and maintain healthy indoor environments and implementation is a top priority and teaches school staff to:

  • Prevent and resolve IAQ problems
  • Identify practical and low-cost/no-cost solutions to fixing IAQ problems
  • Create an IAQ management plan for addressing IAQ proactively and for responding to problems systematically as they arise.

Some EPA Regional Offices and EPA Cooperative Partners  are providing workshops on IAQ Tools for Schools. See for more information.

In addition, EPA has recently developed the Healthy School Environments Assessment Tool (HealthySEAT see ), which will help schools track and evaluate many environmental measures and issues, including IAQ.
