City Schools is implementing its Sustainability Policy that seeks to educate and empower students to be leaders in creating a sustainable city and society. We want all students to be environmentally literate and to understand the connections between their daily actions and the environment by using the environment as a context for achieving academic goals and civic action. We also want to build and operate our facilities in an environmentally responsible manner to create healthy places to learn and work in order to improve student and staff opportunities for success.
We can help support teachers (who can earn Achievement Units for leading greening work!), connect you to grant opportunities, recruit volunteers for one-time green events, and share on-site and off-site experiences for students and staff.
