What is the Green Schools Program?
The Green Schools Program provides support, incentives, and educational resources for new and ongoing resource management practices within Madison County Schools, both private and public. While each school's approach varies based on its needs, all share a common set of goals. Our program's values are rooted in the wise use of resources, creation of healthy outdoor spaces in and around schools, and access to meaningful learning about Madison County's natural spaces. The purpose of the Green Schools Program is to serve residents, students, and schools in the development of healthy, safe, resource-efficient learning institutions and educate while saving energy, resources, and money.
Check out this year's Green Schools Program Guide HERE! Inside, find everything you need, whether you're a veteran to the program or considering participation. This publication offers an introduction to the program, steps and options for participation, funding resources, key dates and deadlines, and more.
