At Birney, Perkins and Sherman elementary schools, as well as all schools across the district, students are involved in helping recycle, learning about ecology and studying the science that may one day provide scientific breakthroughs.

- Works with schools to support Planet Protector programs
- Maintains a website for students wanting information on recycling
- Recycles 300 tons of paper each month from our schools and offices
- Saves the district nearly $90,000 in avoided disposal costs
- Saves more than 61,000 trees
- Operates the nation's largest school district solar energy system
