ASBO Webinar: "What Impact is Asthma Having on Student Learning in Your District?"

What Impact is Asthma Having on Student Learning in Your District?

Join us for a Webinar on May 23

ASBO International is hosting this webinar in observance of Asthma Awareness Month in May. Asthma is the most prevalent chronic condition in children and accounts for 13,000 missed school days each year. It is estimated that 1 in 10 children in the U.S. have asthma indicating that a child suffering with asthma could be found in every classroom.

Join Diane Rhodes from North East Independent School District (NEISD) and hear their story of creating healthy environments through the Asthma Awareness Education Program. Since 2006, NEISD has taken great strides in communicating the importance of maintaining a healthy environment as it relates to the student’s capacity to learn. Their program incorporates disease management guidelines and IAQ best practices into school district policies and practice. The district’s four component approach and six key drivers of the IAQ Tools for Schools framework has been effective in implementing this EPA award winning program to ensure the health of all students, especially for its 8,000 environmentally-sensitive students.

Session Objectives :
• Identify the impact asthma has on the quality of life of school-aged children
• Illustrate the relationship the school environment may have on the development of Asthma as well as maintaining asthma control in its asthma student/staff
• Identify facilities best-practices to controlling asthma triggers
• Discuss case study results in NEISD’s Asthma Awareness Education program.

ASBO International’s Green Schools Advisory Group is proud to sponsor this Webinar as part of the High Performance Schools Series sponsored by ASBO International through a U.S. EPA grant.
