Healthy Air Checklist
Level of Effort
Create a healthier learning environment for your school! Use a healthy air checklist. Going through this checklist lets you identify possible sources of indoor and outdoor air pollution that have an impact on the health of your school community, specifically those living with asthma. After you recognize possible air quality issues, find out the ways you can reduce or eliminate exposure to these hazardous sources.
- Use the Healthy Air Classroom Checklist to identify any signs of indoor air pollution sources. Learn more about healthy indoor air quality for schools in the Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative Toolkit or the EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools Action Kit.
- Walk around the outside of your school building. Do cars and buses idle in front of your school building waiting to pick up students? Does your school have a 100 percent tobacco- free campus policy, including all outdoor facilities? Learn more about the policies you can support for your school in the Guide to Asthma Policy for Housing and Schools.
