It is easy being green!


The Green School Initiative is open to all public and private schools in Cobb County, grades K-12.

To qualify as a Green Classroom a teacher must complete five environmentally based lesson plans per year. This can be any environmentally beneficial project, a lesson plan of your own, a facility tour, or presentations by one of the Cobb County Green School Coordinators. After the projects are completed you submit the activity log that explains the 5 activities, including: The names, dates, duration, brief description, number of students, and what the children learned. This information may be provided on our online form, or the form can be printed and mailed to Green School Program, 660 South Cobb Dr. Marietta, GA 30060.

Schools interested in achieving Green School status must register online. In order to qualify as a Green School five teachers in your school must each complete five earth friendly activities throughout the year. After each teacher completes the lessons the activities log should be completed by the teacher via the online form or mailed to the address above. The deadline for submission of your information is the last school day of March. If you have an activity scheduled for later in the year please submit the activities log including that activity with the date the lesson is planned via the online form prior to the last school day of March. A Green School Coordinator may contact you to confirm completion of the activity. Green Classroom and Green School recognitions will be held during April and May prior to the end of the school year. Your school will be awarded:

  1. Public declaration of Cobb County Green School Status
  2. A Green School Driveway sign
