Caroline County Public Schools received a Green Certification award in the 2017 Virginia School Boards Association’s (VSBA) Green Schools Challenge. It is a friendly competition designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by both the local school division and the broader community. This is the ninth year the awards were given out.
The Certified Green School Division winners were recognized at the VSBA Annual Convention being held in Williamsburg. The 30 school divisions were recognized as being Certified Green School Divisions by implementing new actions and adopting new policies that earn the divisions “green points”. The VSBA Green Schools Challenge was sponsored by Moseley Architects and ABM Education.
