The Secure Schools Alliance supports a holistic approach to creating safer, more secure learning environments. On April 2, 2019, the Healthy Schools Network, in coordination with partner organizations, is leading the 17th Annual National Healthy Schools Day.
Since 2002, National Healthy Schools Day has led to important activities for exploring air and environmental qualities in schools. The national day provides an opportunity for schools and communities to host local activities that educate others about the importance of health schools and celebrates successes achieved so far.
The Healthy Schools Network is a national nonprofit founded in 1995 to advance children’s environmental health in schools and advance better school facilities. It has researched and championed root policy reforms to address the poor conditions of schools and led new calls for public health services for children with suspected exposures in schools. The Healthy Schools Network promotes the use of EPA’s IAQ Tools for Schools guidance, as well as other EPA environmental health guidelines and programs for schools and children’s health.
