The Green Council for School Improvement (GCSI) was established in 2009 to implement and coordinate programs and activities that encourage environmental sustainability, the wise use, recycling and reuse of natural resources, and avoid activities that create adverse environmental consequences.

Key to the council's activities is a Request for Proposal (RFP) process that allows students and staff to submit their action plans for how to make our schools more responsible environmentally.  The District 219 Board of Education has approved funding for these projects.  GCSI members will screen and review the proposals and make the funding decisions.  Details to submit proposals are available here.
