Amity Regional School District No. 5 has joined the Connecticut Green LEAF Schools program.
Connecticut Green LEAF Schools is a program of Connecticut Departments of Education, Energy and Environmental Protection, Administrative Services, and Public Health, in collaboration with more than thirty-five environmental and educational partners.
Connecticut Green LEAF helps schools to grow greener and focuses on “Leading, Educating, Achieving, and Fostering healthy, green schools for all.” There are three goals to the program including: providing effective environmental and sustainability education; improving the health and wellness of students and staff; and reducing environmental impact and cost.
Connecticut Green LEAF Schools is free and open to all K-12 schools, both public and private. Implementation starts with a letter of commitment from the school administration. The school then can complete a self-assessment of their “green” activities and goals. Schools receive support in meeting their goals, including webinars, lessons, and professional development.
All three schools in Amity Regional School District No. 5 have signed on to the Green LEAF program. All participating schools are recognized for their accomplishments. Schools that show substantial progress in greening their schools may be eligible for nomination for the U.S. Department of Education’s Green Ribbon honor. To date, 13 schools and one district across the State have earned federal Green Ribbon recognition.
