Energy & Sustainability
WELCOME to the 2022-2023 school year! We're so excited to be starting off the year with so much momentum behind climate action at the district! Use this webpage to learn about PPS climate policy and climate action, find resources for teaching, learning, and working with our team, and learn about all of our important partners, both inside the district and outside of it.
Our team, and many others, is actively engaged in a district effort to implement the newly passed PPS Climate Crisis Response Policy. Click here to learn more.
We can't stress this enough -- the climate and climate justice work that we have ahead of us cannot be done alone! In fact, it's designed to be done in community. We need the entire PPS universe working together. If you have an idea, a story to share, or a desire to be involved in other ways, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The PPS Energy & Sustainability Office works to combat climate change in our community by reducing greenhouse gas emissions in our schools and promoting resilient, inclusive, sustainable buildings and schoolyards. We work to empower and support our PPS community -- students, teachers, families, and neighbors -- to be climate ambassadors for a more sustainable and just future.
