Missouri Green Schools Program

The Missouri Green Schools Program is aligned with and uses criteria suggested by the US Department of Education's Green Ribbon Schools Program and its three pillars

  1. reduced environmental impacts and costs
  2. improved health and wellness of schools, students and staff
  3. effective environmental and sustainability education

In our program these three pillars are labeled Sustainability, Health and Learning.

Within each pillar, we have split the criteria into three levels that reflect increasing commitment to green goals.
