Region 1: EPA New England

K-12 Schools

Logo of a school

Roughly 20% of Americans spend a good portion of their day in elementary and secondary schools. The day-to-day operations of these schools, as well as how they are designed, maintained, and renovated, may all have environmental and health impacts on the occupants and the surrounding community.

In January 2008, EPA New England released a brochure to help school employees and parents recognize potential environmental health issues at schools:
Healthy Schools: Lessons For A Clean Environment (PDF) (16 pp, 999 K, about PDF)

For links to some resources on school environmental issues from state agencies and other organizations in New England

Visit our schools topic page for a listing of some regional and national programs
