Launching New Resource! Clearing the Air: An Asthma Toolkit for Healthy Schools

Clearing the Air

In any given classroom, at least two or three students are likely to have asthma. Children experiencing asthma symptoms often stay home from school or struggle to participate. Clearing the Air: An Asthma Toolkit for Healthy Schools is a new toolkit containing sample policy language, best practices, and curated resources & tools to help schools create an asthma-friendly learning and working environment. Together we can take action to prioritize clean air and make school a healthy place for staff and students to work, learn, and play! This toolkit is a project of the Massachusetts Asthma Action Partnership (MAAP), Health Resources in Action, and the MA DPH’s Asthma Prevention and Control Program (APCP).
