EPA Launches App to Assist With School Air Quality Assessments

EPA recently launched a new mobile app to help schools conduct indoor air quality assessments (IAQ). The School IAQ Assessment app provides direct guidance from EPA’s Indoor Air Quality Tools for Schools Action Kit to help protect the health of children and staff.

Half of the schools in the U.S. have adopted IAQ management programs. EPA developed the app to help schools more efficiently carry out their IAQ management programs. A study of the costs and benefits of green schools estimated a 15% reduction in absenteeism and a 5% increase in test scores.
