Maplewood Richmond Heights School District is proud to announce Principal, Dr. Robert Dillon, has attained the designation of “Green Classroom Professional” by The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council.
The program encourages sustainable practices in classrooms to further the mission of creating green schools for everyone within this generation.
Green classroom professionals advocate for healthier, more environmentally responsible places in which to work and teach. They are encouraged to make their classrooms into a living laboratory, creating foundational awareness of greener lifestyles, energy savings, and environmental health in students and educators.
The program is designed to provide pre-K–12, teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, and other pre-K–12 stakeholders with the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify features that support or impede environmentally healthy, resource efficient, and sustainable learning spaces, and
- Recognize, adopt, and implement practices that promote health among students and school occupants.
