Environmental Advisory Council

The School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Environmental Management Services (OEMS), under direct supervision and guidance from the Chief Operations Officer, is tasked with overseeing, evaluating, and reducing the risk of environmental hazards in our schools.

The purpose of the EAC is to engage representatives from across our city in the conversation about our progress and plans to address environmental conditions such as asbestos and lead in our schools. The District’s Office of Environmental Management & Services (OEMS) will provide the EAC with quarterly updates, listen to members’ feedback for consideration, and respond to questions that they may have so they can be informed advocates of this work in their communities.
