School Boards and EcoSchools Canada Certification
While many of the policies and initiatives we recommend fit under one or more of the four categories of Governance, Facilities and Operations, Teaching and Learning, and Community Partnerships, there are very few that span all of them.
The EcoSchools Canada program is one such initiative that does, however, and that is what makes it so special.
Not only does the implementation of this eco-certification program fit seamlessly as a Governance recommendation, but by taking EcoSchool actions, schools and school boards can simultaneously make eco-progress on all the other categories.
