During the first-ever U.S. Department of Education (ED) Green Ribbon Schools<http://www2.ed.gov/programs/green-ribbon-schools/index.html> award program, EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools guidance<http://www.epa.gov/iaq/schools/index.html> was prominently featured as one of the recommended resources<http://www2.ed.gov/programs/green-ribbon-schools/resources.html> that many recipients used to help meet the criteria for Pillar Two of the application — healthy school environments. Eleven of these Green Ribbon Schools are from IAQ Tools for Schools award-winning districts, representing nine different states.
Want to learn how they used the IAQ Tools for Schools guidance to gain the Green Ribbon Schools designation?
