ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

It shall be the policy of the Board of Education to educate students about lifestyles and technologies that limit our negative impact on the environment and use natural resources in a manner that maintains quality of life and reduces consumption to a sustainable level. In order to lead by example and to be good stewards of the public's trust, the District will establish and operate healthful, safe and productive learning environments while practicing environmental and fiscal responsibility.

To accomplish these goals, the Board of Education directs the Superintendent to maintain a Sustainability Management System (SMS).  The SMS will define a vision, goals and strategies for achieving district-wide environmental sustainability, and will serve as a roadmap for integrating these concepts into our curriculum and operations. The Board further directs the Superintendent to monitor, evaluate and report on the District’s progress toward environmental sustainability, including the cost effectiveness of relevant programs.  These periodic reports will be presented to the Board of Education and the public.

The Board of Education strongly encourages each District employee and student to work toward environmental sustainability and resource conservation through the implementation of the SMS.
