South Mountain School Ranked Bronze Level by Sustainable Jersey

The following is from Sustainable Jersey for Schools

Sustainable Jersey for Schools announced this week the 91 schools that achieved the prestigious Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification. South Mountain School in South Orange ranked among the bronze tier certification. The 91 kindergarten through twelfth-grade schools come from 43 different school districts across 18 New Jersey counties. In three years, 194 schools have achieved Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification. A total of 679 schools and 273 school districts are participating in the program overall.

“As students and teachers head back to school this year, they will learn the good news that their hard work has paid off,” said Randall Solomon, executive director of Sustainable Jersey. “Becoming certified with Sustainable Jersey for Schools is a significant achievement for schools and their school district. The number of schools participating in the program is truly remarkable.” Sustainable Jersey for Schools, a program for kindergarten through twelfth-grade public schools in New Jersey, is voluntary, but achieving certification is not easy. Each school that is certified at the bronze level must submit documentation to show it has completed a balanced portfolio of the program’s sustainability actions, attaining a minimum of 150 points.

Four schools achieved certification at the more advanced silver-level: Tabernacle Elementary School from Tabernacle Township School District and George L. Catrambone Elementary School, Long Branch Middle School and Morris Avenue Elementary School from Long Branch Public School District. Silver-level certification requires a minimum of 350 points of sustainability actions. The past year has been exceptional. Over 2,700 sustainability actions were completed by schools and districts participating in the Sustainable Jersey for Schools program from performing energy audits and boosting recycling efforts to integrating sustainability into student learning and promoting student and staff wellness.

The Sustainable Jersey for Schools program partners include: New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA), New Jersey Association of School Administrators (NJASA), New Jersey Association of School Business Officials (NJASBO), New Jersey Education Association (NJEA), New Jersey Parent Teacher Association (NJPTA), New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association (NJPSA), New Jersey School Buildings and Grounds Association (NJSBGA) and The Sustainability Institute at The College of New Jersey.

“We are proud of the leadership provided by the boards of education and their superintendents, as well as the contributions of principals, teachers, education support professionals and parents, that made this important milestone a reality,” said Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, New Jersey School Boards Association executive director.
