UPDATE: We are pleased to report 3 of our 4 public schools are now officially CT Green Leaf Schools- Middlebrook, Wilton High School and Miller-Driscoll!

Connecticut is launching a new program, Connecticut Green LEAF Schools, which has been created to promote green and healthy schools for all.  It is a collaborative effort of the Connecticut Departments of Education, Energy and Environmental Protection, Public Health, and Construction Services, as well as many environmental and educational organizations. The program has three goals:  1) to teach environmental and sustainability education; 2) to improve the health and wellness of students and staff; and 3) to reduce environmental impact and cost. Schools that participate will receive program support, resources and curriculum, professional development and learn best practices from school “mentors.” More details on the program will be available shortly so please check back on the website.
