Green School Initiative

Keep Cobb Beautiful_greenschoolslogo

The purpose of the Green School Initiative is to recognize schools in Cobb County with an active environmental program and encourage inactive schools to develop environmentally based education initiatives within their schools.
The primary focus of this program is environmental conservation, preservation, and beautification. The Green School Initiative annually recognizes Cobb County Classrooms and Schools that have met Green School requirements. These schools are recognized for participating in activities that promote good environmental stewardship.

To qualify, the nominated school must have at least 5 teachers receive Green Classroom designations, by completing 5 lesson plans or projects that help students learn about, protect, and beautify their environment.

The Green School Initiative program operates in partnership with the Cobb County Watershed Education and Efficiency Programs, Cobb County P.A.R.K.S. Natural Resources Unit and the Keep Cobb Beautiful program.
