Denton Sustainable Schools encourages students, families, faculty, and staff to improve our environment, create economic value, and support and strengthen the community through the implementation of comprehensive sustainability education.
The City of Denton works with participating schools to expand educational opportunities in several focus areas: Water, Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Management, Land Use and Open/Natural Space, Transportation, Material Resource Management, and Local Food Production.
Participating schools will be eligible for Environmental Award money based on their implementation of activities as described in the School Resource guide.
Denton Sustainable Schools Teacher Training Workshop 6/13 - 6/14
Join us for the Denton Sustainable Schools Teacher Training Workshop! This year we spend the morning of Day 1 at Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center learning about gardening in the classroom, composting and community resources for garden education. Day 1 afternoon we'll be at ECO-W.E.R.C.S., touring the landfill and recycling operations and getting creative with reuse! Day 2 will be a very special opportunity for renewable energy education hosted by Solar4RSchools and sponsored by the Alcoa Foundation. This one of a kind, hands-on training will feature activities and toolkits on solar circuits, solar cars and wind energy, lessons using real-time energy data from projects nationwide and more! Both days include a catered lunch incorporating local produce, raffle prizes and SO MUCH MORE!
