Michigan Green and Michigan Green Schools would like to thank Senator Valde Garcia of the 22nd Senate District for his support of House Bill 5554.

The state of Michigan now has an official Michigan Green School Law, which encourages all public and private schools to participate in easy to administer energy saving and environmental activities in a suggested plan with 20 choices. Any school that achieves 10 of these points in an academic year will receive an official Michigan Green School Designation. Qualifying schools will receive an official Michigan Green School flag and large handsome certificate to proudly display as you continue to work to save taxpayer dollars and protect Michigan's precious natural resources.

A green school, also known as a high performance school, is a community facility that is designed, built, renovated, operated, or reused in an ecological and resource-efficient manner. Green schools protect occupant health, provide a productive learning environment, connect students to the natural world, increase average daily attendance, reduce operating costs, improve teacher satisfaction and retention, and reduce overall impact to the environment.

House Bill 5554
"GREEN SCHOOL" DESIGNATION

Introduced on January 18, 2006 by Rep. Joe Hune, to create a state designation of "green school" for schools that apply and demonstrate that they follow the Michigan 20 Points of Energy and Environmental Savings Activities (View the points here.)

Passed in the Senate (36 to 0) on May 10, 2006
