Special Pre-Summit Event: ZNE Schools Workshop
The California Public Utilities Commission is working with New Buildings Institute and Green Technology to offer this half-day event, which is being held prior to the Green Schools Summit on Nov. 5-6. The highly interactive session will bring together critical leadership from the schools sector and cover strategies for communication, planning, design, and financing.
Registration for this Pre-Summit event is included at no extra cost with every one-day or two-day Summit education pass, or you may register separately for this event.
The State Superintendent for Public Instruction Tom Torlakson and the California Department of Education have launched the Environmental Literacy Task Force (ELTF) to develop a Blueprint with recommendations that implement California’s State Board of Education approved Environmental Principles and Concepts and ensures that all California students will develop the knowledge, attitudes, and decision-making skills to contribute to an ecologically sustainable future. The Task Force is composed of key statewide education stakeholders with expertise in science education, classroom teaching and formal learning environments, informal and outdoor environmental education, culturally relevant curriculum, and green schools. The implementation in California of Green Schools, Common Core State Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards offer important opportunities to integrate environmental literacy throughout the K-12 education system.
Note: All Summit attendees are welcome to attend this workshop; there is no registration charge for participation.
This special workshop for K-12, Community Colleges and career tech education stakeholders will address the job creation aspects of Prop 39, from strategies and resources to create on-campus apprenticeship preparation training programs and contracting opportunities for local, small and diverse contractors, and ESCO’s in the energy efficiency sector to guidelines for tracking jobs created by Prop 39-funded projects.
Note: This session is open to all who have an education pass for Thursday, November 6. To register, click here.
