Mind the Gap(s): Building Successful School-Community Partnerships

Track: 04: Better Together: Crafting Smart Partnerships for Sustainability
Format: How-to Workshops
Full Description: Cass High School (CHS), located in White, GA, has been working with the USGBC Georgia Green YOUR School program for the past three years to integrate specific GYS learning objectives into a high school science curriculum. This session describes how CHS collaborated with GYS staff and the local community to develop a successful program, beginning with a discussion of how students at CHS are bridging the gap between the classroom and their community. Next, participants will be invited to engage with presenters on how they can adapt the CHS model into their own curricula. This part of the session includes a workshop-driven collaboration to identify ways teachers and students can implement or improve a Green Your School Program at their own schools.
