The Green Schools rubric is the heart of the program. The criteria in the rubric help to level the playing field for all schools – elementary, middle, and high, and public and private. The program points are based on a 100 point system, where the maximum number of points for all 6 categories is 104 points (schools can earn up to 4 bonus points under the Innovation category). A school’s ultimate goal under each indicator should be school wide involvement and student leadership. For more details about each category and indicator, please refer to the Green Schools Rubric.
