School Finance: School Building Issues

Green Ribbon Schools Award

Launched by the U.S. Department of Education (USED) in 2011, the Green Ribbon Schools recognition honors schools that are exemplary in reducing environmental impact and costs, improving the health and wellness of students and staff, and delivering effective environmental and sustainability education that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), civic skills, and green career pathways. This is the second year that Massachusetts is participating in the program. Technical assistance for interested schools will be available through the Executive Office Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and its agencies, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE), the Department of Public Health (DPH), the Massachusetts School Building Authority, and a working group of non-governmental agencies.
