Eco-Schools USA has partnered with the Kansas Association for Conservation & Environmental Education (KACEE), Kansas Green Schools Network and Project Learning Tree GreenSchools! to nationally recognize schools in Kansas for their achievements in "greening" their school buildings and grounds, conserving natural resources and integrating environmental education into their curricula.
Through this partnership, schools already pursuing recognition through the Kansas Green Schools of Excellence program will now be eligible for automatic recognition at the national level through both the Eco-Schools USA and PLT GreenSchools! programs.
Participating schools will have access to a wealth of resources, including supplementary hands-on activities and lesson plans, investigative studies and equipment, teacher professional development and grant opportunities to improve their school—indoors and outdoors—and save their school money. This partnership helps more schools start on the path to providing a more healthy and safe learning environment for students and staff, as well as grow students’ interest and academic performance in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
