EPA Indoor Air Quality Tools For Schools
Abstract: Twenty percent of the U.S. population spends their days in elementary and secondary schools. And while most parents and teachers would probably accuse schools of being germ factories, that persistent cough and sniffles may not be the result of the latest bug going around. Studies show that half of our nation's 115,000 schools have problems linked to air quality. To help combat indoor air quality problems, EPA has created the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Tools for Schools Kit. Printed materials included in the kit are available for download from this web site in html or pdf format. Ordering information for the video portion of the kit is included.

Final Specification for High-Efficiency Lavatory (Bathroom Sink) Faucets
Abstract: EPA released a final specification on October 1, 2007, for high-efficiency bathroom sink faucets and faucet accessories (e.g., aerators). Manufacturers that produce faucets and aerators meeting WaterSense efficiency and performance criteria can apply to have their products certified and earn the WaterSense label. Before submitting products for testing, manufacturers must have a partnership agreement with EPA in place. In order to earn the WaterSense label, faucets must be independently tested and certified by a licensed certifying body to meet EPA's water-efficiency and performance criteria. To meet the criteria, faucets and accessories such as aerators cannot flow at a rate of more than 1.5 gallons per minute (gpm), or less than 0.8 gpm. Working with stakeholders, EPA chose a rate that ensures both water savings and that the faucet flow rate will continue to meet the needs of the user. WaterSense labeled faucets not only save water, but the have the added benefit of saving energy used to treat, pump, and heat water. This web site includes information for manufacturers hoping to become WaterSense partners and the product and program specifications.

Green Schools: Attributes for Health and Learning
Abstract: Evidence has accumulated that shows that the quality of indoor environments can affect the health and productivity of adults and children. One consequence is that a movement has emerged to promote the design of schools that have fewer adverse environmental effects. To examine the potential of such design for improving education, several private organizations asked the National Research Council (NRC) to review and assess the health and productivity benefits of green schools. This report provides an analysis of the complexity of making such a determination; and an assessment of the potential human health and performance benefits of improvements in the building envelope, indoor air quality, lighting, and acoustical quality. The report also presents an assessment of the overall building condition and student achievement, and offers an analysis of and recommendations for planning and maintaining green schools including research considerations.

Greening America's Schools: Costs and Benefits [PDF]
Abstract: Written by Gregory Kats, this report is intended to answer this fundamental question: how much more do green schools cost, and is greening schools cost effective? This report documents the financial costs and benefits of green schools compared to conventional schools. This national review of 30 green schools demonstrates that green schools cost less than 2% more than conventional schools - or about $3 per square foot ($3/ft2) - but provide financial benefits that are 20 times as large. Greening school design provides an extraordinarily cost-effective way to enhance student learning, reduce health and operational costs and, ultimately, increase school quality and competitiveness.

Healthy School Environments Assessment Tool (HealthySEAT)
Abstract: EPA has developed a unique software tool to help school districts evaluate and manage their school facilities for key environmental, safety and health issues. [Note: EPA is using the term "district" to broadly describe any institutional system for managing multiple schools, whether they are public, private, tribal, charter or some variation.] The Healthy School Environments Assessment Tool (HealthySEATv2) is designed to be customized and used by district-level staff to conduct completely voluntary self-assessments of their school (and other) facilities and to track and manage information on environmental conditions school by school. In addition to powerful software that can be used by districts to track any facility issues it chooses, EPA has also included critical elements of all of its regulatory and voluntary programs for schools, as well as web links to more detailed information. Districts and others can download HealthySEATv2 at no cost from the EPA web site. HealthySEATv2 is meant to be loaded and used on district computers; once it is downloaded from the EPA web site, HealthySEATv2 is yours to customize and use as you see fit. There are no reporting requirements and no obligation to use the checklist EPA has provided.

Healthy Schools: Lessons for a Clean Educational Environment [PDF]
Abstract: More than 53 million children and 6 million adults in the United States spend their days in our elementary and secondary schools. Reducing environmental risks inside these buildings is critical to maintaining the public health. Almost all of New England's children will spend a large portion of their childhood in school. To help our children stay healthy, we must reduce their exposure to environmental hazards in school environments. When students and their teachers are healthy and comfortable, children learn and produce more in the classroom, which in turn improves performance and achievement later in life. This brochure can help school employees and parents recognize potential environmental health issues at schools, both indoors and outdoors. It includes basic information about a broad range of topics, and links to web sites that offer more information and guidance on how to have a healthier school environment and comply with relevant laws. EPA's Healthy School Environments web site provides access to programs that help prevent and resolve environmental issues in schools.

Lessons in Efficiency
Abstract: Anyone who is in contact with children—be they a teacher or a parent—knows one of the most successful ways to create social change is to start with the youth. Of the many efforts conducted throughout the US to create "greener" schools, water efficiency is one of the pivotal factors. Three of the 10 largest school districts are in Florida, which has been under water conservation measures for months. The fifth-largest school district is in Clark County, NV, another focus of water use concerns. Throughout the US, many governmental water agencies are partnering with local school districts in identifying and addressing water waste issues.

NY-CHPS High Performance Schools Guidelines
Abstract: The State Education Department (SED) and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) created these guidelines, known as the "Collaborative for High Performance Schools" (NY-CHPS), to encourage the use of energy efficient design when building and renovating schools. NY-CHPS will help schools develop and maintain learning environments that contribute to improved academic achievement while reducing operating costs and protecting and conserving our natural resources. Schools built according to the NY-CHPS guidelines are durable, easy to maintain, healthy, energy efficient, and comfortable. These improvements contribute to a better learning environment that has been shown to contribute to reduced absenteeism and better teacher and staff retention. Main sections of the guidelines cover the school site, water, energy, materials, indoor air quality, O&M, and "extra credit" considerations. SED and NYSERDA established an Advisory Council to help guide the creation of the NY-CHPS guidelines. That Advisory Council consisted of members of the following groups: the Council of School Superintendents, the Association of School Business Officials, the Association of Educational Safety and Health Professionals, the Superintendents of Buildings and Grounds Association, the New York State Department of Health, the Healthy Schools Network, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the Association of Energy Engineers, and the American Institute of Architects. The guidelines are available for download in PDF Format (Length: 145 pages) at the URL listed here.
