For City Schools, a commitment to sustainability means minimizing the environmental impact of our buildings, educating school communities about the connections between their daily actions and the environment, and empowering students to be leaders in creating a more sustainable school district, city, and community.
The City Schools sustainability plan identifies the key areas that City Schools will focus on in the coming years. The plan is tied to the district’s Blueprint for Success and the sustainability policy and is an important part of making our schools engaging, exciting, and healthy places to teach and learn. It has the following goals:
Develop environmentally literate students
Create healthy school environments
Reduce and conserve natural resources
Improve school green spaces
Engage school communities
Build student leadership
Below, find resources for staff, students, and our entire school community to learn about our local, regional, and global ecosystems and ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Together, we can make Baltimore a cleaner, greener place to learn, work, and live. For questions or more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
City Schools buys electricity generated at a solar “farm” in Howard County, which lowers the cost of electricity at 13 schools.
