Environmental Sustainability

The Board of Education has determined that establishing and maintaining a robust environmental consciousness and sustainability program is a District initiative, as such matters may substantially impact the health and wellbeing of present and future Brockport Central School District students. 

In achieving this goal and to be a model for our community and other school districts, the District will maintain and implement innovative zero waste best practices throughout the District for the purpose of reducing waste, energy, and greenhouse gases.

The Superintendent of Schools or his/her designee shall implement practices that may include the following:

  1. Educate students about the environment, the relationship between humans and our planet’s ecosystem, and sustainability best practices.
  2. Promote initiatives addressing waste prevention, reuse, recycling, landfill diversion, and use of recycled supplies and materials.
  3. Encourage waste prevention, recycling, composting, and use of recyclable materials through lease agreements, contractual relationships and purchasing practices with vendors, contractors, businesses, and government agencies that align with fiscally responsible and ethical purchasing processes.
  4. Facilitate student leadership who display an aptitude for, and interest in, environmental consciousness and sustainability, and encourage their involvement in the District’s initiatives.
