VSB Teachers, students, parents, and staff have been advancing the sustainability of their schools for many years. This has included projects that increase energy efficiency, create outdoor learning opportunities, and promote active transportation.
In recent years, the Board has encouraged a more comprehensive approach. This includes:
- The 2010 adoption of the VSB's first Sustainability Framework
- The 2013/14 Sustainability Audit to evaluate the progress of sustainability in the district:
- The development of a multi-year Environmental Sustainability Plan, which includes input from all levels of the VSB community.
