posted on Oct 19, 2016

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this module, participants should be able to:
  • Make the connection between school indoor environment and student health and academic performance, particularly for asthmatics
  • Understand that since there are no standards or guidelines for air quality in schools, acceptable IEQ is based on good practices of design, maintenance and operation of facilities
  • Understand the importance of districts having an indoor environmental health program at both the facility and district level, with members that meet routinely to discuss issues, concerns, and to identify best management practices
  • Identify the common issues routinely observed in schools and how they may impact indoor environmental conditions and ultimately student health
