As part of its commitment to helping schools across New Jersey reach their goals in sustainability, the New Jersey School Boards Association is offering members and school district personnel two opportunities to attend a one-day Sustainable Practices Working Session.

In the one-day sessions, to take place on Thursday, Oct. 12 and Thursday, March 15, participants will review a Sustainability Wellness Check, which will be in alignment with the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification program. Board members will receive four Board Member Academy credits and four Certified Green Leader credits for participating in this working session.

NJSBA, in cooperation with the N.J. Department of Education (NJDOE) and the N.J. School Building and Grounds Association, is offering six Continuing Education Credits (#CE-00084) toward certification for schools facilities managers attending this program. Attendance can also contribute toward the minimum sustainability training requirements for Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification.

Both sessions will take place at the NJSBA headquarters at 413 West State Street, Trenton. The sessions will run from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. The sessions are free and include a continental breakfast, lunch and program materials. Pre-registration is required and seats are limited.

Districts are encouraged to send their entire green teams. To register for a session, click on the date, either Thursday, October 12, 2017 or Thursday, March 15, 2018.
