Sustainable Jersey for Schools Certification Program
The New Jersey School Boards Association and Sustainable Jersey are working together to deliver a new voluntary certification program
designed specifically for public schools. As of March, 2017, nearly 600 schools and 250 school districts are already participating in this program. The program advances and supports sustainable practices in schools; identifies concrete actions that schools can implement to become certified, and provides a roadmap that includes tools, guidance materials, training and financial incentives to support and reward progress. To become certified, schools are required to complete and submit a balanced package of sustainability actions. A number of Workshop training sessions will help prepare attendees for the certification program. Learn more about Sustainable Jersey for Schools.
