Managing Sustainability & Indoor Air Quality in School Districts: A Profile of Staff in the K-12 Sector

This report, published by the Center for Green Schools, provides insights from a national survey on the financial costs and benefits of hiring PK-12 sustainability and environmental health staff to drive better working and learning conditions within schools. The publication highlights professionals from 49 school districts across the country serving 4.1 million students. Building on the 2015 report, Managing Sustainability in School Districts, this report showcases changes in the K-12 sustainability professional role over time. In addition, this report provides an initial look into who is primarily responsible for IAQ in school districts and how that has changed as a result of COVID.

Advocates looking to hire sustainability staff at their organization can find additional case making facts, staffing examples, actual job descriptions, and reporting structures in the companion resource, Making the Case for K-12 Sustainability Staff: A Toolkit for Success
