Because Aurora specializes in providing services to California school districts, K-12 schools, and JPAs, and has in-depth knowledge of regulations applicable to school districts, we provide periodic newsletters on how environmental regulations affect schools, and school districts. We focus our newsletters on practical ways that schools can comply with new environmental regulations, or become more efficient and solution-oriented in meeting existing health and safety standards. Our newsletters are full of tips for cost-effective solutions. Our newsletters often provide interesting outdoor curriculum options so that students can participate in monitoring environmental quality (i.e. stormwater, water quality sampling), and improve health and safety around school grounds.
