Back to School Resource Kit

Every September, as kids return to school, childhood asthma hospitalizations increase in part because of poor indoor air quality and exposure to asthma triggers including chemicals in schools. It is essential for parents, teachers, and all school employees to be proactive in ensuring the schools are healthy and safe for children and adults.

In an effort to provide guidance towards an environmentally healthy school, the Coalition for Healthier Schools has released its annual Back to School Toolkit with fact sheets and guides on Indoor Air Quality, Healthy Purchasing, Green Cleaning, Tips for Tours, and more.

The Toolkit is now available online.
