Green Classroom Certification
The AmeriCorps member will have the opportunity create the framework for and implement a Green Classroom Certification program for Whatcom County. The classroom certification process will have the goal of engaging teachers and students in energy, waste and water conservation measures in their classrooms and beyond. The program will be piloted with elementary schools in Bellingham School District, with the expectation that the framework will be designed to be replicable for other school districts after the pilot year. Depending on the success, it may be adapted for middle and high schools as well.
