California Association of Independent Schools Conference
Green Schools Initiative just gave a workshop at the CAIS conference titled "It's Easy to be Green: 7 Steps to a Green, Healthy School." There was a lot of enthusiastic participation, brainstorming of ideas and innovative solutions, and sharing of experiences. We look forward to collaborating with CAIS and other independent schools to support their greening efforts.
The Green Schools Initiative can help train parents, teachers, staff, and administrators at your school about how to:
• develop a long-term vision for environmental health and ecological sustainability at your school;
• create effective processes to engage the entire school community in greening efforts;
• establish institutional structures to ensure progress, and
integrate curricula to engage students in greening efforts.
Take home tools include: 7-step approach to getting started; 4 key pillars of a “green school,” sample school board resolution; list of support resources and organizations; and examples of “green” schools and curricula.
