Green Schoolyards America partners with school districts, public agencies and other colleagues to develop city- and state-wide living school ground initiatives. We facilitate public dialogue about innovative research, design, education, and policy, and offer public presentations, professional development, and publications.
School District Partnerships
We help school districts develop comprehensive, sustainable, district-wide green schoolyard programs with strong connections to local sustainable-city planning efforts, regional ecosystems, educational standards, and children’s health. We work with school districts to develop site-specific operational strategies and professional development programs for school administrators to help them adopt and sustain living school grounds.
Green Schoolyards America Principals' Institute
The Green Schoolyards America Principals’ Institute supports school administrators in their pivotal role as leaders of their school community and champions of a healthy and dynamic school environment. The Institute provides resources, advice, professional development and a peer network that helps principals adopt and sustain comprehensive, high quality, green schoolyard programs at their schools. The Green Schoolyards America Principals’ Institute is co-led by our CEO, Sharon Danks and GSA Principals’ Institute Program Director Dr. Raymond Isola.
We will be accepting applications this fall for our 2018 Principals' Institutes in the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Los Angeles Area. Please contact us if you would like more information.
