Radon Testing in Schools
Did you know that radon testing is currently required for Iowa’s Voluntary Preschool Programs for Four-Year-Old Children? EAIS believes all students, staff and community members deserve to be safe from radon-induced lung cancer. EAIS helps Iowa schools save taxpayer dollars by affordably and accurately testing for radon themselves. Learn more about how to stay ahead of radon testing requirements with the School Radon Training & Support System©.
Energy Efficiency Support
Through building-specific energy coaching, facilities manager professional development, and helpful connections, EAIS and member schools collaborate to identify priority energy conservation projects that improve school buildings, reduce electricity/kilowatt hour usage and natural gas/therm usage, and save General Fund dollars. Learn more about how to increase energy savings for your school or district.
of Radon Teams
have a written school radon testing and mitigation plan on public file after participating in our School Radon Training & Support System. This equals 42 school districts in 4 years.
of Buildings Tested
had initial test results showing slight radon elevations that EAIS and School Radon Teams are working to correct. In just two years, 53 Iowa school buildings have been voluntarily tested for radon.
of Energy Members
