You are right on the mark. Paint on boilers and furnaces was one of the uses listed by EPA in 1999. And there's no reason to assume school boilers were any different. Monona

While we're at it, there was an article published in the Spring or Summer in 1995 in the ACGIH Journal of Applied Occupational and Environmental Health citing the elevated levels of PCBs (in excess of 1%) in the high-temperature paint used on locomotives.
