The Madison Metropolitan School District understands the importance of sustainable practices, and is busy implementing new programs throughout the school system. Our Sustainable Schools Initiative is focused on constantly improving sustainable practices in all that we do from facilities and maintenance to what and how kids learn in the classroom. Look for our logo to identify our District’s sustainable practices. Check out stories that show the different ways this work is showing up in our schools and classrooms, and improving the way that we teach and learn.
This coming fall, you will see our Sustainability Initiative in action as we kick-off a new, district-wide energy conservation program: People.Power.Planet. We will work with each school to raise awareness and foster energy-efficient behaviors among teachers, staff, students, and parents to achieve the District’s energy conservation goals. To find out how you can get involved at your school, please contact Julie@sustaindane.org.
