Schools across the globe have shifted their focus to the importance of indoor air quality in light of recent events. And it makes sense too.

In fact, a 2020 study from the U.S. Government Accountability Office shows 41% of schools need to update or replace their ventilation systems. Inadequate ventilation means unhealthy air can build up for students and staff. 


The goal of this guide is to:

  • Provide a useful overview of indoor air quality
  • Share tools that schools can use to improve air quality
  • Offer guidance for navigating CARES/CRSSA funding to improve air quality in schools
