What is the Green Schools program all about?

Clark County Green Schools works with all local public and private schools in their sustainability efforts. We’re here to encourage environmental leadership and give students tools to implement change in their schools.

Waste Reduction Education

We provide assistance to boost waste reduction education and awareness in schools, providing recycling containers, as needed.

Composting & Recycling Assistance

We’re here to assist with food waste composting and recycling in cafeterias, offering education, containers and sort tables.

Environmental Certification

We connect schools to EarthGen (formerly Washington Green Schools), a statewide environmental certification program.

WA Next Generation Science Standards

An important element of the project undertaken for the Department of Ecology was to demonstrate how the investigations meet or match Washington State's Learning Standards. It is important for teachers and administrators to be able to explain how work being undertaken by students in the classroom aligns with these standards. The following two pages provide this alignment for the twelve investigations.
