Greening Your School


Step 1: Appoint a Sustainability Coordinator

In order to comply with Local Law 41 (2010), Principals must appoint a sustainability coordinator from school-based staff who will be in charge of creating your school's sustainability plan involving recycling, energy conservation, ecology and green curriculum by the last Friday of September. Principals are required to submit the coordinator's contact information using the Sustainability Plan Web Application accessible on computers on the DOE administrative network.

Step 2: Develop Your Annual Sustainability Plan

All appointed sustainability coordinators will receive an e-mail with a link and unique log-in information to create a school sustainability plan by the last Friday of October every year using an internet based web-application.  The Division of School Facilities provides a detailed help document for the web application to aid sustainability coordinators.
