This year, there has been a strong focus on creating healthier environments in schools. School environments play an important role for a student’s health and academic success of a child. The Environmental Protection Agency school website recently updated a new guidance for schools to create, maintain and enhance a school’s environmental health programs. There are three main guidelines that the agency has introduced in addition to the other programs that the EPA provides like kits for the indoor air quality management coordinators at schools and district levels.
The new guidelines can help health programs for K-12 schools. Many schools have been faced several environmental issues and other schools have been struggling implementing certain standards to help a school’s environment. In order for schools to see an improvement in their environment, indoor air quality and overall energy efficiency of schools these three guidelines can help schools and districts manage their own heath programs.
