Did schools just ask the facilities person for the data and they handed it over?
Kristen Keim, Center for Green Schools

Often times, the school's facilities officials will have the data on hand for the energy and water consumption and are happy to share with classes

For other categories, like human satisfaction, IAQ and transportation, the Building Learners team will need to conduct audits to obtain that data

Schools can sometime access their waste data through their waste hauler but may need to conduct an audit to obtain the needed data

I am not sure I would be able to do all of the aspects of this project in my very small school but I'd love to learn more about the training for teachers and take it. I can see that I could use some of the audit projects presented here for example within my classroom as a replacement for other projects I do. I think my students would be more interested in waste management and air quality if it's presented as a way to gain sustainability! And maybe we could convince the administration to go further once we collect data!
