Green and Healthy Schools

What is the Green and Healthy Schools Program?

The GHS Program is a joint initiative of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and GCPS and provides integrated environmental education, incorporating applications of Science AKS, problem solving, civic skills, and green career pathways.

What are the benefits of the Green and Healthy Schools Program?  

There are many benefits to being a Green and Healthy School, such as-

  • Engaging students in environmental problem solving, right on the school grounds 
  • Eligible to apply for a mini grant for environmental education projects
  • Connecting schools to community partners and experts to take learning beyond the classroom walls
  • Building environmental stewards – on and off the school grounds
  • Recruiting community experts to serve as speakers or mentors for student
  • Opportunities to participate in community events related to green school programming 
  • Knowing you are helping to protect our environment and reduce our impact on the natural world
  • Green and Healthy Schools are recognized every school year

How do I register my school for the Green and Healthy Schools Program?  

Each school should have a designated Environmental Education Teacher Liaison(s) that helps guide your school’s green efforts throughout the year. The liaison(s) captures the great things your school accomplished (2021-2022 school year), by completing and submitting a Profile. Your school will now be registered with the Green and Healthy Schools Program.  

All schools are encouraged to submit a GHS Profile at the end of each school year. The simplest way to complete it is by working in conjunction with your fellow teachers, administrator, and support staff. Use the Profile to plan your school’s initiatives at the beginning of next year. There are many opportunities for year-round environmental education and action throughout your school community. 

Liaisons are invited to attend two county-wide GHS workshops (2.5 hrs. each), as well as a summer field excursion workshop. 2022-2023 meeting dates will be announced at the beginning of the school year. The workshops are a great way for teacher liaisons to learn of and share best practices from successful G&H Schools. 

What is the Green & Healthy Schools Environmental Profile?

The Profile is a form that is completed to register your school with the Green and Healthy Schools Program. This Profile should be completed at the end of each school year. This form has several sections and is relatively short to complete but will most likely require input from others. This will help you not only capture the great things your school is doing, but also helps you plan for the school year ahead.

Profiles are due by June 3, 2022. Once your completed Profile has been received, your school will be registered as a Green and Healthy School for the coming school year. 2022 G&H Schools will be announced in August, when school resumes (via an email to your school’s teacher liaison and principal). Schools will be recognized at the GHS Kick-off Meeting, on September 29th, 2022. (location TBD).
