In each session, participants will review a Sustainability Wellness Check, which will be in alignment with the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification program. Board members will receive four board member academy credits and four Green Leader credits for participating in a working session.
All programs run from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.) Pre-registration is required and seats are limited. The programs include a continental breakfast, lunch, and program materials. The programs are sponsored by the Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey, and are offered at no cost to New Jersey school leaders.
