When it comes to students' health, our kids deserve the best protection possible. These days, elementary and secondary schools have many important safety issues to deal with, not the least of which is to ensure that students are protected from dangerous chemicals where they learn.

Join us for the Schools Chemical Cleanout Campaign RCC Web Academy -- Chemicals in Schools: Real Problems, Real Solutions -- to hear from school, community, and industry experts who have all grappled with school chemical management issues and come away from the experience with valuable lessons learned and stories to share.

In addition to expertise in their respective fields, each of the Chemicals in Schools: Real Problems, Real Solutions panelists bring very fresh perspectives on chemical management in K-12 schools to the table.
All three panelists recently participated in the White House "United We Serve" summer service initiative.  The US Environmental Protection Agency recognized the panelists for their efforts to implement sustainable long-term responsible chemical management and to inventory and safely dispose of over 500 pounds of outdated, unknown and unneeded chemicals in Grandview, MO.  They will discuss their experiences in the webinar.
