South Whidbey School District examines sustainability

The South Whidbey School District is taking half of today to consider sustainability.

Nonprofit group Service, Education & Adventure has partnered with the school district for all teachers to engage in three breakout sessions and table displays about environmental STEM — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — issues.

The nonprofit’s mission is to promote engagement with the natural world and foster environmental stewardship throughout the Pacific Northwest. Representatives from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, the University of Washington, Washington State Parks and the Langley Historical Society, among other research and environmental agencies, will be part of the events.

District administrators identified sustainability and “green” STEM education as a priority for the 2012-2013 school year.
