Steps to apply:

    • Attend an Introductory Workshop: Before you can submit your application, someone from your school must attend a free Green Schools Workshop or complete the online training (this is mandatory for all new applicants). The in-person workshops are held in the fall each year. These trainings will give you the basic information you’ll need to help your school take successful steps towards sustainability. You can register for a FREE  in-person workshop  or complete our FREE online training .
    • Form a Green Team at your school. Assess where you currently are based on the rubric, and plan new green initiatives. Your entire school should work to implement and document these initiatives throughout the year.

      • A cover sheet completed and signed by the principal, SAC chair (if applicable), and two lead teachers

  • Please note, if your school is currently recognized as a Green School of Promise, Quality or Excellence you are not required to attend a Green Schools Recognition Program Workshop. However, you are still required to submit an application each year to maintain your Green Schools status and to give notice to Lauren Butcher (lbutcher2013@fau.edu) of your school’s intent to apply. An email will be sent in December requesting your intent to apply.
