NYCDOE Initiatives

New York City is the only school district in the nation that requires each school to designate a Sustainability Coordinator as mandated by DOE policy. This person, along with the Custodian Engineer, are the primary school-based contacts for the Office of Sustainability. Our goal is to develop programs and opportunities that support the work of the Sustainability Coordinators so they can be change-makers in their school, leading impactful sustainability projects and initiatives. This year, our Sustainability Coordinator has worked to revamp our annual Sustainability Plan to include diversified offerings to include the Arts, forge student engagement, and opportunities for our school to help students and staff deepen their sustainability.
