Fri, May 12, 2017, 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM EDT
Are you in interested in learning how to make your school a healthier, greener space for children to learn and staff to work? This conference is geared toward all involved in the school community, including administrators, teachers, school nurses, wellness coordinators, facility and food servioce directors, business managers, parents, and school board members.
Studies have shown that the school's built and outdoor environments impact student behavior, development, and academic performance by contributing to the health, well-being and cognitive capacity of children and adolescents. The summit will feature keynote speakers with expertise in green school design, renovations, and sustainability. Implementation of health-focused environmental practices in and around the school building will be covered. The summit will conclude with the Healthy School Recognition Luncheon. A special afternoon workshop on lead and radon in the school environment will be offered.
