Previous New Business Item: Reducing MCPS’ Carbon Footprint
The Board held a wide-ranging discussion on the school district’s commitment to reducing its overall carbon footprint and the need for investing in concrete initiatives that will help the school system achieve that goal. The Board approved a resolution directing the superintendent to develop a plan for reducing the school system’s carbon footprint. Each year, beginning with the coming school year, a progress report will be given to the Board on this initiative. The plan should include all aspects of stewardship, including existing programs and new efforts to reduce the environmental impact of the school district, its schools and facilities.
