The project promotes environmentally healthy practices that can help schools lower facility costs, improve learning conditions and increase energy efficiency. Specifically, the project expands collaboration and information exchange among state agencies, academic professionals, organizations and the K-12 educational community. It promotes the use of sustainable environmental practices in standards based on K-12 curricula. It increases the safety of Illinois schools for students, teachers, administrative and facility staff, and the community. It creates a learning environment that sets an example for sustainable environmental behavior for K-12 students; and it develops performance measures that track the progress of environmentally sustainable activities at schools.
