Strategic Program 16: Climate-friendly public schools

There are 149 K-12 public schools in six school districts in the city of Portland. These school districts hold significant assets in three categories relevant for PCEF funding: 1) buildings, 2) transportation, and 3) school yards. Most of this strategic program investment will be allocated amongst the school districts to implement physical infrastructure projects that reduce GHG emissions and improve climate resiliency. A smaller portion of the funding will be allocated to support student-led initiatives for five years at each middle and high school within the city of Portland. Read about this strategic program.
