Baseline EfS Survey (School Level)
GreenFutures (www.philasd.org/greenfutures) is a five-year sustainability plan that was created by District staff and stakeholders with a common goal: to make public schools great and green. This plan is an offshoot of Action Plan 3.0 and it aims to make every school a green school that will better serve our students and communities. GreenFutures is made up of five sections: Education for Sustainability (EfS) [http://bit.ly/EfS_Definition], Consumption & Waste, Energy & Efficiencies, School Greenscapes and Healthy Schools, Healthy Living.

As the District strives to support learning for sustainability for all segments of the school community, including students, teachers, staff, administration, families and the community, it is just as important to encourage these groups to take action that furthers sustainability in ways that are relevant and appropriate to their roles.

This survey was created to help determine what schools are doing as we begin the work of the GreenFutures plan, specifically in the EfS section.

The GreenFutures EfS Mission Statement consists of three goals:

1. Integrate K­12 curriculum, instruction and assessment with EfS standards.

2. Cultivate administrative practices and policies that support EfS throughout the District.

3. Strengthen and expand school, family and community engagement so as to enrich EfS.
