Getting Started

Within the Green Flag School Program, there is a place for you and your school!

We recognize that schools are often pulled in every direction with tight budgets, increased testing requirements, and restricted staff. For these reasons and others, we encourage Green Flag Schools to enlist the help of parents, students and community members to help out with this program.

        Step 1: Give us a Call!
        Step 2: Review the materials we send you (or download below)!
        Step 3: Host a meeting to get started!

Throughout this program, we will connect you with materials and experts to help you make your projects a success!

Public educaton, combined with student learning activities and collaborative school community work, have helped schools create protective school programs and policies, and gain noteriety as Green Flag Schools!

We hope you'll join us become a part of the solution!
