Sustainability Initiatives Rolls Out New “Learning Green” Website

The Learning Green website will highlight the District’s sustainability efforts and provide information and resources in support of sustainable behavior.  The site will celebrate schools that are “Caught Being Green,” i.e., engaging in activities related to sustainability.  Visitors to Learning Green will also find news and events and information regarding volunteer opportunities, workshops, opportunities for recognition, etc.

The site also provides current information about the District’s Solar Initiative, including links to sites where students can see energy as it is being generated by each solar array in real time.  These solar “dashboards” also contain statistical data that can be used to supplement lesson plans.

Schools participating in the POWER Challenge will be able to track their energy and water consumption at the site as well.
