The Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) has made a commitment to operating in an environmentally sustainable way. A sustainable school district is one in which each student:
(1) understands complex systems,
(2) is ecologically literate,
(3) develops a sense of agency in interacting with his or her community on
behalf of the systems which impact that community.
When a school operates in a sustainable fashion, it has positive outcomes on the health of its students and employees; it is a responsible steward of community resources; and it models behavior for future generations.
Sustain Dane brings proven programs and services to the MMSD's pursuit of a holistically sustainable school district.
