Air Quality Issues in School Site Selection

Categorized Under: Environment

 

 

Prepared by ICF, June 2005 (revised May 2007). Local air quality is an important factor to consider in the selection of a location for a new school. For California's South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), ICF developed a guidance document to assist school districts in the selection of locations for new schools with respect to local air quality. The guidance document synthesizes and references a variety of scientific literature and other guidance to provide easy to understand steps that can minimize exposure of school children and school personnel to air pollution and toxic emissions at school sites.
