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  capital funding for these projects.  GCSI members will screen and review the proposals and make the funding decisions.

On Saturday, October 11, 2014, 47 volunteers from District 219 performed a combined 140 hours of natural areas restoration work at three sites throughout the North Branch of the Chicago River. The sites were Linne Woods, Somme Prairie Nature Preserve, and Watersmeet Prairie Grove. Work included brush-cutting, seed collecting, and seed dispersal. All three are important to improving the quality of our natural areas. Thank you to all who made this event possible!
