Elmwood Park Public Schools Green Team
In our commitment to creating a more sustainable and environmentally responsible school district, we have established a Green Team. This team, composed of dedicated educators, administrators, and community stakeholders, will lead our efforts to achieve certification from Sustainable Jersey, a prestigious program that recognizes and supports sustainability initiatives in schools and communities across our state.
* Meetings are held quarterly or as needed.
This team will review and evaluate sustainable initiatives and make recommendations to the district regarding the feasibility of implementing these initiatives with the goal of creating a “greener”, more sustainable community. These initiatives will be sure to meet the present needs of its citizens without compromising the ability to provide for its future generations. This shall be achieved through the implementation of environmental practices and initiatives which will provide a healthy and sustainable district and enhance the quality of life for our students and community members.
