Pathways to Green Schools...
This Pathways to Green Schools site is designed to provide school districts with helpful information in one location. It includes the latest information on state programs and grants available for your school, as well as best practices from districts around the state--where schools and communities are making investments that help conserve natural resources and reduce energy costs.
We believe that the entire educational experience should include green and sustainable practices. This includes the transportation to and from school, the buildings where our students learn, the energy being used in our schools, the food being served in our cafeterias, and the curriculum that is taught in the classrooms.
There are many ways that schools can become more green and sustainable, and each step forward is a step in the right direction.
We hope you will get started on the Path, and we look forward to hearing about your success.
