AAPS Environmental Sustainability Department

  • The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) serves a central role in the education of generations of students in our community.  As the Ann Arbor community faces the opportunities and challenges of the climate crisis, AAPS fully embraces its responsibility in the community and joins our many partners in working towards shared environmental sustainability goals.

    • Mission: The Ann Arbor Public Schools is committed to care for the environment, to model and achieve an environmentally sustainable existence. We demonstrate this commitment, both through our critical mission of educating generations of students as strong stewards of the environment, and also in living an environmental commitment with every decision across every area of the organization.

    • Vision: In all decisions, we embody and live the deeply held value of caring for the earth and our environment.  Individual, team and district decisions are consistent with care for the earth.
