Environmental Health and Safety
The Environmental Health & Safety Department is committed to regulatory compliance.
The Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Department manages the District’s compliance to federal, state, and local environmental regulatory requirements regarding indoor air quality, hazardous and regulated materials, and Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
Our success is measured by our impact on providing a healthy and safe learning environment for our students and staff. We achieve our goals through strategic planning and execution, continuing educational training, and a thorough understanding of applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
Our goal is to maintain sound environmental policies through regulatory compliance, sustain environmental resources by establishing pollution prevention, source reduction, and waste minimization programs, and educating the community through public outreach and environmental awareness initiatives. Our commitment to these areas has allowed us to pursue environmental excellence, one small step at a time, while ensuring the health and safety of all district employees and students.
