Sustainability

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Limestone District School Board is committed to reducing our ecological footprint in a fiscally and socially responsible manner through various initiatives. It is critical that we help students and staff understand how our individual and collective behaviour affects the environment, and how environmentally responsible lifestyles can contribute to healthy, sustainable ecosystems.

Environmental education is a vital tool that helps young people understand the nature and complexity of environmental challenges and builds their capacity to take appropriate action. In our work toward fostering understanding of environmental education and a sustainable school system, we strive to provide leadership to our broader community and to seek leadership within the same. 

The Board has undertaken several system changes (in both curriculum and facilities) to help progress environmental education and action in the Board, and plan for long-term environmental sustainability. The Board also has an Environmental Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC) that provides an avenue for community involvement and receives advice and input from the community. The committee may make recommendations to the Board regarding the establishment and development of education programs and practices of the Board that are related to environmental sustainability. 

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
