Our Green Schools are schools who have chosen to maintain a healthy environment that can support a successful learning environment while saving energy, valuable resources, and money.
The CCPS Green School
drive has been pulsating through our schools since the inception of our CHESPAX
program. The certification of being a green school was an opportunity that became available through a program run through the Maryland Association of Environmental Outdoor Education (MAEOE) in 1999. Since then, each of our k-12 schools have become a certified green school. We are proud to say that CCPS is the only school district in Maryland where 100% of our k-12 schools are certified. Of those 24 schools, 8 of them have reached a sustainable status.
