Kay et al,
My daughter who teaches 7-12 science had this problem at her last school, a small rural school in Montana.
We contacted the State Superintendent of Schools in the Governor's Office , who referred the issue to the Montana Department of the Environment, who were to to contact the local school superintendent and send a former hi gh school science teachr turned chemical safety specialist out to make an a ssay and recommendations. I don't know the outcome, but at least some action was taken. I cannot speak to schools in KY and OH.
There is a recent article in J-CHAS about lists of what chemicals should an d should not be in secondary school laboratories. It would be good to check your recent back issues and read this paper.

&nb sp; I=92m helping with a workshop for high school chemistry teachers, and several say they have stockrooms containing old, or excess, chemicals which the y need to get rid of. I remember some kind of program to help with this, especially for small schools with no funds for a clean-up. However, I don=92t remember the particulars. Can someone steer me in the right direction. The schools in questions are in Kentucky a nd Ohio.
&nb sp; Thank s, for your assistance.
