EPA School Flag Program

EPA School Flag Program


The School Flag Program is EPA’s Air Quality Program that uses colored flags based on the Air Quality Index (AQI) to notify teachers, students, administrators and the local community of air quality conditions. The CT Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) encourages Connecticut’s public, private and state technical schools to participate in the School Flag Program to educate and inform children about ground level ozone, what to do on high ozone days and its’ health effects. Contact Michele Chaffee at CT DEEP (This email address is being protected from spambots.
