School Air Quality Survey for Students

School Air Quality Survey for Students

Health and learning problems triggered by poor indoor air quality in schools can vary. It is vital that the student, backed up by a health care professional, work with the facility director in analyzing patterns that may provide clues to the link with indoor air pollution.

A diary or log of symptoms correlated with time and place may prove helpful. Following are some excerpts from the Healthy Schools Network’s survey. For the full questionnaire, with all 11 carefully researched and presented questions, see Shop for Green Guides, below.
