The Green School Initiative is a program of the Cobb County Water System Watershed Stewardship and Water Efficiency Programs, Cobb County Parks and Creation Natural Resources Unit, and Keep Cobb Beautiful.
The purpose of the Green School Initiative is to recognize schools in Cobb County with an active environmental education program and encourage other schools to develop environmentally based education initiatives within their schools.
The Green School Initiative encourage teachers to bring into their classroom activities that offer ecological enrichment and appreciation for the natural world. Those teachers that participate are called Green Teachers and as the number of Green Teachers in each school grows, the school can become a Green School. Green Classrooms and Schools are recognized annually for their efforts. It takes 15 or more teachers submitting lessons to earn the Gold level award.
The primary focus of the program is conservation, preservation, and beautification of our environment. The program annually recognizes Cobb County classrooms and schools that have met the Green School requirements. These schools are recognized for participating in activities that promote good environmental stewardship.
