Form a Team

One strategy for success in systemic integration of environmental education into your district curriculum is to form a leadership team that can identify the most appropriate places for EE to enhance learning and address standards.

Developing a district-wide plan for integrating EE into the curriculum can help to establish appropriate curricular connections, coordinate partners, and ensure equitable access to EE for all students.
