Attend Healthy Indoor Air for Schools Conference

The Maine Indoor Air Quality Council is hosting a free, one-day Healthy Indoor Air for Schools Conference on March 12 as part of the Council’s two-day Maine Indoor Air Quality Conference. Schools and districts are invited to send a team of representatives–facilities staff, health care professionals, teachers and administrators–to this event. The conference will present proven strategies to implement an effective and comprehensive program to manage your IAQ and general health and safety initiatives.

Studies show that a healthy school learning environment can reduce absenteeism, improve test scores, and enhance student and staff productivity. Tight budgets and reduced funding for facility maintenance can make providing a healthy learning environment a significant challenge. Managing IAQ on an ongoing basis not only ensures a healthy learning environment, but also saves your district money by addressing concerns before they become a significant, expensive problem.

This conference is offered in partnership with the Maine Department of Education, the Maine Association of School Nurses, the Education Plant Maintenance Association, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Green Buildings Council, Maine American Institute for Architects, and the Maine chapter of ASHRAE.

Details and registration for this event are available at www.maineindoorair.org.
