The Green Schools Recognition Program (GSRP) is a showcase for partnership. In collaboration with the Palm Beach County School District, GSRP began as an initiative of FAU Pine Jog and the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
Today the program also includes a collaboration with Martin County School district and recognizes 110 schools in both counties as of 2017.
The purpose of GSRP is to recognize and encourage schools to green their operations and curriculum. FAU Pine Jog provides professional development and support for participating schools. Pine Jog also coordinates the application and judging process and facilitates professional development opportunities through our Learn Green Institute.
“The Green Schools Recognition Program has been a gift to me! Being the Green Team Leader at Grassy Waters has allowed me to help so many children develop their character of being environmentally conscious, responsible, and empathetic people. Green Schools has provided a platform to build kids to become truly great, green people!”
