Green & Healthy Schools

What is meant by Green and Healthy?

The Green & Healthy School Program is joint initiative of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful and Gwinnett County Public Schools. It is a system of strategic planning, teaching, learning and doing that results in a greener and healthier natural world.

Making your way to a Green & Healthy School begins with The Green & Healthy Achievement Profile ( G-HAP) .

The Green & Healthy Achievement Profile (G- HAP) is a roadmap /action plan for schools, administrators, and teachers to guide in the planning, executing, and assessing the effectiveness of environmental lessons, activities, standards, and school programs. Putting your EAP plans into action will enhance 21St century learning and help you make your way toward a Green & Healthy School Program.
