Unique Projects, Certifications, Awards & Best Practices

Why Are Unique Projects & Best Practices Important?

Best practices help the school district identify and share successful research-based and/or evidence-based techniques across the school district. We are proud to share exemplary examples of environmental stewardship from the Broward County School District with a local, state and national audience. It is our goal to encourage awareness of the role of environmental stewardship in today's world among the educational community.

About Unique Projects & Best Practices

Broward County Public Schools has created a special web site of district-wide best practices being implemented in both instructional and management settings. The Web site can be found at: http://www.broward.k12.fl.us/bcpsbestpractices

Our schools are participating in a number of projects and activities to help protect our beautiful environment. Here is a list with links to schools who are working on really special projects that we all can be proud of.

Go Green Program for Output Reduction

The "Go Green" goal is to help reduce the consumption of paper and supplies for printers, copiers, fax machines, and other output devices. In addition to being good for the environment, the program will result in cost savings in each site’s operating budget so that funds can be redirected to support other student learning projects.

Energy Conservation & Uitility Management

The School Board of Broward County is implementing this Web site to facilitate increased awareness and efficient use of energy and other natural resources. The main thrust of the Energy Conservation/Utility Management Department is to enhance environmental stewardship and contribute to the District’s efforts to reduce inefficiencies in the use of energy resources such as electricity, and natural gas, and to further reduce water consumption and the production of solid waste while increasing the comfort level of classrooms and schools.
