Last December STA submitted an application to the Indiana Department of Education to be considered for being named a Green Ribbon School. This is a designation given by the US Department of Education that honors schools that are “exemplary in reducing environmental impact and costs; improving the health and wellness of students and staff; and providing effective environmental and sustainability education, which incorporates STEM, civic skills and green career pathways.” Nominees are selected by each state and sent on to the federal level.
We were notified earlier this week that STA has been selected as a nominee from Indiana! Our application now goes to the US-DOE for review, which should be completed by April.
Please review the GRS application we submitted as it is pretty impressive to see everything we are doing.
Thanks to everybody for your efforts to help STA be a school that cares about the environment.
