EPA's Heathy School Environments Website Renovated

To better serve the K-12 schools community, the US EPA has made a few changes to its website.  The schools website is an excellent resource to find all you need to know about beginning, maintaining or enhancing healthy school environments for children. There is new information and reformatted the site to provide for a more user friendly experience.  You will find the latest school environmental health news on our "School Bulletin" board, as well as resources and tools to create or enhance healthy, safe learning environments for children.
