Description Extended Information
Parents across the country are shocked to find school building construction crews in their communities descending on or next to landfills, toxic sites or heavily polluting industries. Siting schools on or near contaminated land poses a great risk to the health and development of students and teachers. Unfortunately, this is usually legally allowed as there are no federal laws and very few state laws or regulations to prevent this from happening.

CHEJ created the "Safe School Siting Toolkit" to provide communities with the tools to protect their children’s health by organizing for the passage of safe school siting policies. This toolkit is based on the lessons we have
learned over the past 28 years of working with communities to fight back polluting facilities, build relationships with elected officials, and run successful local, regional, and national campaigns to end toxic chemical exposure.
