Sustainable Schools

SCUSD Sustainable Schools Program


The Sustainable Schools Program not only addresses resource conservation and building construction but it also dives deep into the culture of our District. The Sustainable Schools Program focuses on behavior and school systems by providing our staff with tailored materials and methods that create more hands-on learning and leadership opportunities for our students. Through this program students have an improved understanding of the world around them and will be better equipped to succeed in a career or higher education institution after graduation.
