Advancing Sustainability at the VSB
Teachers, students, parents, and staff have been advancing the sustainability of their schools for many years. This has included projects that advance energy efficiency, create gardens and healthy food learning opportunities, and promote active transportation.
In recent years, the Board has encouraged a more comprehensive approach. This included:
- In 2010 the VSB adopted its first Sustainability Framework.
- In 2013/14 the VSB conducted a Sustainability Audit to evaluate the progress of sustainability in the district.
In 2015, District staff are developing a multi-year Sustainability Action Plan. For more information check back to this webpage later in the year, or send an email to email@example.com
