How to start a King County Green Schools Program

The Auburn School District partners with The King County Green Schools Program. For more information visit the King County Green Schools Pagelinks to external site.

The King County Green Schools Program Mission is to provide King County schools and school districts with tools and support needed to:

  • Initiate and expand waste reduction and recycling practices and other conservation actions.
  • Involve the whole school community in environmental stewardship.
  • Operate environmentally efficient and responsible facilities.

There are many ways to start a School Green Team. One example is outlined on the King County Green School's websitelinks to external site listed under program steps.

Tips:

  • Start a School Green Team
  • Start small - Take one step at a time and build capacity when you can.
  • Tie programs into classroom learning.
  • Promote waste prevention, recycling and other environmental program benefits.

Interested in starting a green schools program? First discuss it with your school administrator, next contact Scott Weide, Auburn School District's Resource Conservation Manager via email or at 253-931-4955.
