Orange County School District Honored by Dept. of Education

Congratulations to the Orange County School District, one of only 15 school districts in the nation selected for the prestigious Green Ribbon Schools District Sustainability Award through the US Department of Education's 2016 Green Ribbon Schools Award program. Read their inspiring story here

The celebrated honor recognizes schools, districts and institutions of higher education that demonstrate excellence across three pillars: 1) minimizing environmental impacts and costs; 2) improving student and teacher health and well-being; and 3) ensuring that every student graduates with an understanding of sustainability and the requisite skills to excel in the 21st century.

For any school that wishes to make progress towards sustainability goals, www.greenstrides.org, a collaboration between the the USGBC's Center for Green Schools and the U.S. Department of Education, provides the largest repository of free resources to advance green schools. This site also includes detailed information about ED-Green Ribbon Schools honorees. More information about ED-Green Ribbon Schools and the 2016 honorees can be found at www.ed.gov/green-ribbon-schools.
