Description: The Green Schools Program assists schools (K-12, public and private) and school districts to initiate and expand waste reduction, recycling and other resource conservation practices. The goal is to involve the whole school community in supporting environmentally efficient and responsible facilities. Since its inception in 2003, the program has helped nearly 300 schools and 10 of the 18 school districts in King County. The program provides hands-on assistance, information, recycling containers and recycling signs. All participants start with level one, which focuses on waste reduction and recycling. Level two includes energy conservation, plus one optional category, and level three includes water conservation plus one optional category. The optional categories are Environmental Education, Environmental Purchasing, Green Building, Hazardous Materials Management and Reduction, Litter Reduction, and Transportation Choices. Upon completing a program level, the school or district receives recognition, including a banner, a certificate, a success story on the program Web site, and media releases.
