New web site launched - Schools of the 21st Century

Tour the site (it's good looking) but pay particular attention to the listings here on the resources page, which pretty much cover the current state of the subject.

Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools' Portable Design Challenge

Montgomery County is a suburb of Washington, DC. Its public school board is expanding and has taken a leadership role in building green schools. In 2006, the board launched an unique design challenge for a new generation of classroom portables (aka modulars) and invited students, parents, staff and outside design professionals and manufacturers to participate. This web site logs the outcomes, which may well have produced the most advanced modular classrooms in North America.

Build Green Schools.ca

These pages are a resource for students, parents, staff and neighbours who wish to make the buildings and yards in their school community sustainable, high-performance and "green". The site was originally created for members of the Runnymede Public School community in the west-end of Toronto, but has expanded. This blog is owned and maintained by Marshall Leslie (see www.mleslie.com). You can also follow us on Twitter @greenschools_ca
