What is Tools for Schools?

EPA’s Tools for Schools (TFS) is based on an action kit providing all the materials necessary to promote a low-cost, problem-solving team approach to improving IAQ. Once a committee of administrators, teachers, maintenance staff, parents, and sometimes students investigates and prioritizes indoor environmental quality (IEQ) hazards, short and long-term strategies are developed to solve IEQ problems. The Department of Public Health, along with provides training to CT school districts to implement and sustain the Tools for Schools Program.
