K-12 Schools

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description Wiscasset and South Portland, ME are expected to participate in EMS development through the EPA Region 1-New England pilot project in 2003 with the American Lung Association of ME, with the vocational school in Bangor offering technical advice and input. A Massachusetts' EMS K-12 school pilot is also getting underway, with help from University of Massachusetts Amherst. The Massachusetts Healthy Schools Council is finalizing a self-audit checklist for Environmental Health & Safety Issues, and will test the revised checklist with partner schools, then distribute broadly.

Joan Jouzaitis delivered the introductory talk on chemical management and broad environmental issues to an audience of over 40 science teachers, administrators, and facilities management personnel at a ME DEP workshop held in Bangor, ME on May 20, 2003. Joan also met with the Director of the vocational school hosting the event (The United Technologies Center of Bangor, ME) and learned about their systemic efforts to address environmental, health and safety issues. UTC maintains written procedures for addressing a wide range of EHS issues. The Director of the school indicated that a strong motivator to addressing issues thoroughly was the need to have a safer environment for the students.
