Sustainability & Environmental Education
SFUSD has a robust sustainability program that incorporates the twin goals of promoting student ecoliteracy while reducing the District’s environmental footprint.
SFUSD Earth Month Competition
This April, the SFUSD Sustainability Office will be launching its first Earth Month Competition! The goal of the competition is to encourage SFUSD students, staff, and parents to engage with sustainability resources available in the community.
Participating schools will learn about ways to reduce their environmental footprints through water conservation, energy reduction, waste prevention, sustainable transportation, and eco-literacy. Winning schools will receive a cash prize of $700 or more!

SFUSD's Office of Sustainability seeks to reduce its utility use, promote alternatives to the car commute, and minimize waste generation.
Official office website coming soon. Until then, check out our Behavioral Energy Reduction Program at www.sharethesavings.org

Bond Green Schoolyard Program
San Francisco voters have allocated over $12 million to fund green schoolyards, which provide an outdoor classroom for standards-based teaching, interaction with the natural environment, and opportunities for hands-on learning.
