The New Jersey Sustainable Schools Project pilot program has been instrumental in helping school leaders understand the monetary, environmental and educational values that green schools provide.

The 11 pilot districts and schools that participated in this program have demonstrated leadership by adopting new policies, environmental curriculum standards and efficient operations and maintenance practices. The measurable success of the districts participating in the program has been a springboard to the formation of the new statewide Sustainable Jersey for Schools program.
