Why apply?

The Florida Green School Designation benefits the environment, helps designated schools improve the health of the community, and increases environmental literacy by connecting students, faculty and staff to the environment. Reducing water and energy use and reducing waste also reduces operating costs. Designated schools also receive technical assistance through the Florida Green School Designation Program website, where each designated school is featured. The website also provides access to best management practices, technical assistance and other resources.
