Green Schools

Green Building United leads the Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program.

Currently in its sixth year, the program provides grants, one-on-one support, and expert resources to K-12 schools in Delaware that are committed to becoming healthier, more sustainable, and more energy efficient.

Participating schools work toward achieving certification and national recognition through Eco-Schools USA and the U.S. Department of Education’s Green Ribbon Schools award.

Benefits to participating schools include: networking with like-minded educators, opportunities to attend roundtables and workshops, free building energy assessments (for qualifying schools), access to the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager to help with energy benchmarking, eligibility to apply for an annual mini-grant program, and access to support while implementing sustainability initiatives.

The energy audit was an awesome way to kickstart our Green Team efforts.

Melissa Tracy, Odyssey Charter School

It is extremely useful for administration to understand their building, to be able to plan, and also to use for grant opportunities and it was great for the students to get the hands on experience and real data to use.

2019 Mini Grant Awardees

The Delaware Pathways to Green Schools Program awarded $10,000 in mini grants to ten area K-12 schools to fund energy- and climate-related projects. The mini grant funding is provided by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility. 

When executed, all projects will have a positive impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and will help to cultivate a generation of good stewards of the environment on K-12 school campuses throughout the state.
