Schoolyard Improvements

2011 Bond Green Schoolyard Program

In 2011, voters authorized the continued modernization and greening of all SFUSD school sites. Work on these sites has continued through 2015. The SFUSD Department of Sustainability in coordination with SFUSD Curriculum and Instruction—began providing environmental liaisons 100% of sites. Liaisons provide on-the-ground school support working to reduce utilities costs; targeting 100% landfill diversion; supporting walk/roll to school, wellness, and other campaigns; and promoting professional development opportunities to site staff.

Student and staff wellness benefit from physical education minutes in the form of creative, outdoor, environmentally-friendly learning experiences such as walking field trips, bike-rodeo trainings for students, overnight camping trips that include hiking, and integration of student exercise in outdoor green schoolyards that are continuing to be developed at each school in SFUSD. SFUSD earned a California Green Ribbon Schools (CA-GRS) Silver Level Award in 2015.
