Over the 2009-2010 school year, with support from California’s Public Charter Schools Grant Program, Environmental Charter High School will be disseminating its successful Green Action Curriculum to ten California public schools. Together, we will work to help our students become agents of change in their communities, while they learn concepts, knowledge and skills that will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
Participating schools will receive all training and curriculum resources at no cost. The grant will pay all travel costs to workshops, as well as pay for substitutes for up to 10 release days for each participating teacher (to attend workshops and receive coaching.
