2 Cape Schools Get Sustainable Jersey for Schools Bronze

By Press Release

EWING – Sustainable Jersey for Schools has announced that Ocean City Intermediate School and Upper Township Middle School received Bronze Awards and were among 91 schools that achieved the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification.
The kindergarten through 12th-grade schools are from 43 school districts across 18 New Jersey counties.
“As students and teachers head back to school this year, they will learn the good news that their hard work has paid off,” stated 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 remarkable.” The program 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.
“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,” stated Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod, New Jersey School Boards Association executive director. “We congratulate the schools on achieving Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification.”
On Oct.24, the certified schools and their districts will be celebrated at a reception held during NJSBA Workshop 2017 in Atlantic City. Workshop 2017 will feature Sustainable Jersey for Schools sessions along with NJSBA sustainability support programs for schools.
