Asthma is a leading cause of school absenteeism. With proper asthma management and making sure our children have healthy learning environments, we can all help to keep children with asthma in school, where they will grow and learn with their peers.
To this purpose, the SFUSD Tools for Schools Program works to promote indoor air quality to keep all students, teachers and other staff healthy. The San Francisco Board of Education adopted a Green Cleaning Resolution in June 2011, and in 2012 all segments of SFUSD are striving to implement this resolution.
