Oregon Green Schools​

The Oregon Green Schools Association (OGS) is a non-profit organization that provides assistance to Oregon schools in their quest for conserving resources. OGS offers a framework for schools to create resource conservation programs unique to their needs, while Regional Coordinators provide technical assistance and recognition of their efforts. Schools may apply for three levels of progressive certification, Entry, Merit, and Premier, each requiring greater commitment and action from the school community. The term of certification is for three years, allowing schools time to accomplish identified goals and gain program strength.

Becoming an Oregon Green School involves conducting waste and energy audits, performing outreach within the school and to surrounding communities, and actively participating in reducing the use of resources. Beaverton School District encourages schools to participate in the Oregon Green School program and currently has 14 schools OGS certified. Each of these school communities is paving the way toward a more sustainable future.
