    LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR SUSTAINABLE SCHOOLS STAKEHOLDERS

    'Creating a Culture of Sustainability'


    We would like to introduce you to an exciting partnership between the New Jersey Chapter of the US Green Building Council (USGBC NJ) and the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA).  

    These workshops have been created for key district stakeholders to learn how sustainability can lower a school’s operating and maintenance costs.

    Continental breakfast & Lunch provided. 


    9:00 AM - 11:AM  

    Session 1: Sustainable Policy Development; Where are you today and where do you need to go?


    This course will assist policy makers, boards, and/or administrators in understanding the components of a sustainable school. Participants will investigate how to assess where their schools are today and identifying, creating, and establishing sustainable policies and practices within their organization to move their district forward on a path toward sustainability. Areas to be discussed will include site management, water efficiency, energy efficiency, renewable energy, purchasing, waste disposal, indoor air quality and green cleaning. Many of these policies are necessary to achieve LEED for Existing Buildings certification, Green Ribbon Schools recognition or Sustainable Jersey for School certification. Regardless of the desire or ability to actually certify, the creation and implementation of such policies will define goals and metrics for achieving an improved learning environment, reduced operating costs, and lessened environmental impact.


    11:30 AM – 1:30 PM

    Session 2: Developing a Sustainability Action Plan; How to get from here to there.

    This course will focus on creating implementation plans around the sustainable policies adopted within the organization, building consensus and stake holder buy-in, and effectively managing action items with limited resources. Financing mechanisms, structures, and opportunities will be discussed as part of this course, such as Energy Savings Improvement Programs (ESIP) and Power Purchase Agreements (PPA). Clearly defining roles, responsibilities, metrics, and timelines to achieve the sustainability goals defined in any implementation plan is a key element that will also be discussed.


    2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

    Session 3: Implementation, Tracking, and Evaluating Sustainability Action Plans: Are we there yet?


    This course will build on the policy and implementation plans developed in prior courses and provide recommendations on managing successful achievement of goals set forth in sustainable policies and defined in the Sustainability Action Plan, including various methods to track performance and evaluate results. You cannot improve what you cannot measure. Using our buildings as teaching tools is critical to the mission of creating a culture of sustainability and an often-missed opportunity. Sustainability is a process of ongoing assessment and improvement and the lessons learned in managing our facilities sustainably often translate well in to the classroom. This session will also examine how those improvement projects implemented to reduce energy, water, and natural resource consumption can serve as the basis for an integrative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (iSTEM) and environmental curriculum.


    CEUs: This course may be used for self-reporting to GBCI (Green Building Certification Institute). Each of these workshops would likely qualify for 2 self-reported GBCI credential maintenance units.

    On Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014, the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council will host the third annual Green Apple Day of Service

    For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents and elected officials, as well as international green building councils, USGBC staff, chapters, member companies and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities.

    Projects ideas include: creating a raingarden; painting rainbarrels; conducting an energy audit; hosting a recycling drive; or holding a tour of a green school. 

    There will be more details to come on events sprouting up in New Jersey- but these events rely on you. This is a grassroots campaign, and you decide what will work for your school and your project.

    Feel free to contact USGBC NJ with questions.
