2016 Big Read and Sustainability Summit

     Our goals include: to foster citizenship in our community; tie the campus together on a thematic topic; engage students in interdisciplinary approaches to real-world issues; nurture project-based learning opportunities; develop and showcase our students’ leadership and project management skills; provide staff development in technology and literacy training; organize a centralized, clearly articulated focus for the 2015-16 Boise High HS student led Summit on Sustainability. The desires is to increase student buy-in by providing multiple entry points into learning for a diverse and curious student body; and increased opportunities for all students.  "Garbology", in particular, was selected for its reader accessibility and cross-disciplinary connections. We are offered a free copy to the Boise School Board. As a result of this summit Boise High Students initiated a successful delamping program which culminated in thousands of dollars of savings. They wrote and received a solar power grant to bring a demonstration solar system to Boise High. . They designed and sent out a Boise High parent survey on sustainability. They studied and presented ways to preserve the environment by switching the District to serving lunches with Bio degradable lunch trays instead og the current Styrofoam lunch plates.
