EPA Releases Guidelines for Healthier Schools
The guidelines focus on maintenance; moisture and mold issues; pests and pesticides; ventilation; and contaminants that include PCBs, radon, and diesel exhaust. Along with recommendations on assessing existing resources among state agencies, the guidelines offer case studies and technical advice, including regular HVAC inspection, selection of low-emitting paints and cleaners, and revision of school bus schedules to minimize idling.
