SAVE THE DATE for the 2014 Sustainable Schools Summit this Fall at RI College!
Our goals for the Sustainable Schools Summit are simple, but bold: to promote greater participation in maintaining efficient, clean, and healthy learning environments; to improve schools’ environmental quality; to make schools across the region healthier and more productive places to teach and learn; to raise awareness of the Rhode Island Department of Education’s high performance schools protocol and achievements; and to provide districts with resources to integrate high performance building features into their curriculum.
Since its inception in 2008, the Sustainable Schools Network has organized Sustainable Schools Summits in partnership with Rhode Island Department of Education and Rhode Island College, among other key stakeholders, and through the support of Rhode Island Foundation, Verizon Foundation, National Grid, RI Office of Energy Resources, and Prospect Hill Foundation. Each event brings together upwards of 200 teachers, students, parents, administrators, facilities managers, and officials from school communities across the state to showcase successful local initiatives and to provide participants with the knowledge, resources, and support network to move their school toward greater sustainability.
