Sustainable Jersey for Schools is a certification program for New Jersey public schools that want to go green, conserve resources and take steps to create a brighter future, one school at a time.
Launched in fall 2014, the program provides tools, training and financial incentives to support and reward schools as they pursue sustainability programs.
Why participate? Research shows that sustainable practices:
- Result in healthier schools;
- Reduce operating costs and free up money for the classroom, and
- Contribute to student success
Listen to this podcast as a school superintendent and representatives from Sustainable Jersey discuss the benefits educationally, financially and environmentally in Sustainable Jersey for Schools.
This brief Education Matters video explains how implementing sustainability measures in our schools can save districts money, as well as provide other benefits.
