arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The State Department of Health Services has developed a list of toxic arts and crafts materials which cannot be purchased or ordered for use in grades K to 6 and a list of toxic materials, which are no longer sold but which may exist at some schools. The lists should be available through the State Department of Education.

The Governing Board recognizes its responsibility to protect the health and safety of students in the selection of materials used for instruction in arts and crafts activities.

The Superintendent shall develop procedures for the purchase, use and proper disposal of arts and crafts materials which insure that the health and safety of students is protected from harmful exposure to toxic substances. These procedures shall be developed in accordance with information provided by the State Department of Education and the State Department of Health Services.
