Chuck and others,
The response to this request has been excellent.  I'm still trying to  get 
caught up on responding to more than half the replies.
Folks in more than half the states have come forward to offer to help  
provide information on safe purchasing, handling, storage and disposal of  chemicals 
to school science teachers in their state.  It's important to  have 
knowledgeable folk who are familiar with their state's requirements.
LSI is going to let the 15,000 US school districts know that this resource  
is there to assist them and help to direct their questions to a knowledgeable  
EH&S person in their state.
I hope you and others will want to participate.
Regards, ... Jim
