Green Schools

Pursuing knowledge and practices that lead to more environmentally-friendly schools is not new for school board members. Indeed, school boards have been developing policies and carrying-out projects to “go green” by building energy efficient schools and incorporating green strategies to create optimal facilities for learning and teaching as well as to minimize costs and maximize savings resulting from advanced building designs and energy conservation practices.

With millions of people using public school buildings every day, the educational, environmental and financial impact of operating green schools is significant. Sustainable schools realize a range of benefits including better student health, enhanced academic achievement, reduced environmental impact on the community and financial savings.
