Buildings & Grounds
Edina Public Schools is committed to the conservation of resources and sustainable, Earth-friendly practices throughout the district. Through a number of district policies (see below), the district manages materials and energy resources, as well as all types of waste, with an eye toward stewardship of district financial resources and the welfare of the planet. This philosophy aligns with the district educational competency of being responsible, engaged citizens. By modeling responsible practices, we hope to teach our students the importance of environmental awareness and practices that they will take with them and apply throughout their lives.
The Go Green Advisory Committee promotes sustainable environmental and energy conservation initiatives by providing information and support for schools and programs within the district. The committee consists of parent and staff representatives from schools throughout the district, as well as district personnel from Nutrition Services, Buildings and Grounds, and the City of Edina. The Go Green Committee meets four times each school year, with additional meetings scheduled as needed. The Committee invites anyone interested to attend the meetings and participate in discussions and idea sharing. Please email Laurie Wilcox if you wish to receive GO GREEN emails and news.
