The New York City Department of Education (DOE) is the largest school district in the United States with over 1,800 schools, 1,300 school buildings, 137,500 employees, and 1.1 million students. Despite the overwhelming size of the school system, the DOE has continued to stress the importance and integration of sustainability programs into the classroom and operations. The Office of Sustainability seeks to transform the DOE into a more sustainable and efficient public entity regarding facility operation and student environmental education. To help achieve our mission, the Office of Sustainability partners with a variety of organizations and non-profits, to provide a wide range of specialized information, resources, and training for our students and teachers to help them make DOE schools the greenest they can be.
