Tips for participating in GreenStarSchools
Use this GSS website to find action projects and tools to help your classroom, school, or district to conserve resources, reduce its carbon footprint (CO2 emissions), and get certified under the Green Star School program (Note – currently, GSS certification is only for classrooms, schools, and districts in San Mateo County.)
Once your classroom has completed an action project you can use the GSS website to create a project report to share what your class has done and learned to conserve resources and reduce C02 emissions. Our tools can help you determine how much C02 was saved by your project and your class can proudly display this on the GSS C02 Saved Leaderboard.
To get started, go to the Project and Tools section to find projects that help your classroom become GSS Certified (school and district certification will be available in Spring 2016).
Please note you can search and use the information and action projects and tools on this website without signing up your classroom. Nevertheless, we strongly encourage teachers in Alameda and San Mateo County to sign up their classrooms, so you can report and share your result and showcase your C02 reductions on the GSS leaderboard.
