Healthy School Environments

Healthy Schools Checklist

This 16-page voluntary assessment, adapted from materials in the brochure Sensible Steps to Healthier School Environments (PDF), will help you assess your school's current environmental health, and reduce and prevent exposures to common environmental health hazards in your school. 

You can complete it either by hand or by using the fillable forms in the PDF.  Note, however, that if you use the fillable forms, you must print or scan the form in order to save your work; saving the document will not save your completed fields.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
