Editor's Notes

  1. Overview: Inspiration for Change (slide 1) Dominican Sisters’: In the 1990’s, the Dominican sisters embarked upon the Sustainability Project. They realized that their centuries long mission to care for people needed to have a broader scope. In other words, that they needed to care for the environment, as well, in order to insure the well being of all. Our school: (slide 2)
  2. Our school: (slide 2) As a Dominican School, this became an integral part of our mission: “We celebrate diversity, recognizing God’s presence in ourselves an in all creation. We recognize what it means to be human in a global community and respond with integrity to the needs and challenges of our time.” As educators, we recognize that our ultimate goal is to educate students to have knowledge and skills to help create a future where we can all THRIVE
  3. Physical Context: Effective Use of Resources Facility: 500+ acres w/almost 700 people Early on there was awareness on need for change. If we want to teach about sustainability, we must model it through our practices. The game changer was really hiring a Director of Sustainability to advance campus-wide initiatives. Changes to improve our daily operations then included: (slide 3) Audits and assessments of how we use resources, such as water, energy, waste, etc. Creating an understanding for the need to more efficiently manage resources – partnerships were created with the administration, maintenance, and service food services to help coordinate these changes. This resulted in several fundamental environmental “retrofits” Managing our waste: Reducing where possible (ex. Junk mail, printed materials), green purchasing (non-toxic cleaning supplies, products with recycled content), recycling and composting food and landscape waste. We also have an onsite large scale horse manure system that provides compost for school garden & campus. We currently have a %64 recycling rate. Recycling & Composting saves up to $15,000 annually. Energy & Water Conservation Energy – We perform annual audits and track our usage through the Energy Star Portfolio Manager. We have retrofitted almost of our lighting, installed LED exit signs, upgraded to more efficient boiler with weather sensor controls, installed programmable thermostats and light sensors in some bathrooms, solar thermal system for pool, 412kW Photovoltaic system that generates up to 85% of schools energy needs. Since the installation, we have reduced carbon emissions by an estimated 11,625 metric tons .In efficient lighting alone, we have saved an estimated $19,792/year and 83,272 annual kWh. Additional lights are being installed this year for savings of $4,800 and 25,278 kWh. Water - Annual audits and monitoring through utility bills. We have all low flow toilets, installed aerators to faucets, efficient showerheads, capped off unnecessary irrigation and swtiched to drip, native and drought tolerant plantings, compost & mulch to protect soil, three 10,000 gallon tanks collect water from artesian spring to water garden, students paint 100 gallon rainbarrels installed on campus to water student planting pots.
  4. Result: All of this has led not just to more efficient daily operations, but as we have created a healthier environment, we choose green ways to school, we teach nutrition through the garden, serve local and organic food, consistently use green seal certified cleaning products and have developed wellness programs. We have created a HEALTHIER environment for work and a dynamic context for learning. We have an extensive bus transportation system with 75% of student ridership. In partnership with Safe Routes to School, we hold “Green Ways to School Days” and provide bike safety workshops. Students learn where food comes from by growing in the garden. They harvest and cook in the garden kitchen where they learn about nutrition, cultural traditions and basic food preparation. Garden produce and foods from local farms are served in the cafeteria (30% organic). Students visit local farms to learn about sustainable farming and glean food that is donated to other schools or food banks. All food scraps are composted and the cycle starts again!
  5. The campus becomes a model for sustainability and a living classroom: students can analyze data generated by solar panels, or understand the seed to table cycle as they work in our school garden and prepare food in the garden kitchen. Garden Program Prek-5th Grade classes visit the garden weekly during 6-week garden units. Lessons follow a Seed to Table model, but are adapted to each classes curriculum. For example: 3rd grade studies local environment so in the garden we focus on local agriculture in Marin. Students learn about the different types of farming in Marin. They experience each type of farming experientially: vegetable farming – they plant and prepare a seasonal veggie dish, dairy farming – they make homemade cheese; Underwater farming – they study anatomy of oysters & clams donated by local oyster farm, bbq and eat.
  6. Foster student leadership at each division level: Green Team in the HS & Eco-club in the MS Invite the community onto campus to educate and celebrate through: Garden potlucks, annual garden day and Earth Day Student Green teams provide a forum for students to make change. (examples: awareness campaigns, solar presentation to board, Auspens, recycling improvements and planning annual Earthday activities.,
  7. Ultimately, students learn how to apply principles of sustainability to the wider community through participation in: gleaning, homeward bound and beach clean-ups
  8. To truly educate and prepare our students for a sustainable future, our most important step is to develop an innovative curriculum that places sustainability at it’s core by integrating key concepts, such as systems thinking, and giving many opportunities to apply them across all disciplines and all grade levels (next slide)
  9. Challenges Very large campus to manage Financial constraints – not always the resources to dedicate International student body – creates cultural differences to overcome Director of Sustainability for a Pre-K to 12 school cannot always be everywhere at all levels to the advance program   Benefits Real cost savings for school: In efficient lighting alone, we save up to $25,000 annually, recycling/composting saves up to $12,000 annually and our solar array offsets 65% of our electricity bills. Overall success of program: Crittendon example – Students making change in their communities.
  10. Conclusion: Recently, environmental author, William McDonough, spoke at our school about his book, The Upcycle, and he advocated for a mindset that moves us beyond sustainability to one where we design for abundance. He said:   What if humans designed products and systems that celebrate an abundance of human creativity, culture and productivity? That are so intelligent and safe, our species leaves an ecological footprint to delight in, not lament?   This truly is what we hope to achieve through all that we do and we encourage you in your efforts to do likewise.
