The District Collaborative's mission is to leverage our collective knowledge, experience, and influence
to accelerate the implementation of sustainability principles that incorporate
sound environmental, economic, and equitable decisions in schools
OUR GOALS ARE TO
our collective purchasing power to increase access to sustainable alternatives
to the development
of the Alliance's
BUILD and SHARE
The District Collaborative’s first major project is work within the Alliance to help launch the Sustainability Tracking and Roadmap Tool (START), a web-based reporting platform that will improve data collection and reporting of energy and resource efficiencies and other sustainability programs in member schools. The platform’s quantitative approach enables districts to share energy, water, and waste information with their schools to encourage conservation behavior.
You can support the District Collaborative's projects by becoming a Sponsor of Green Schools Alliance.
