About Environmental Literacy Steering Committee
In 2016, Superintendent Torlakson appointed an Environmental Literacy Steering Committee (Steering Committee) to create and lead an implementation plan for California's A Blueprint for Environmental Literacy. Comprised of 30 prominent educational leaders and nonprofit stakeholders, the Steering Committee includes representatives from the California Department of Education (CDE) and CalRecycle (a division of CalEPA), three directors of the University of California’s Subject Matter Projects, and a member of the State Board of Education. The Steering Committee is now working to implement the most leveraged, timely, and scalable recommendations from the Blueprint to support school districts, teachers, and local program providers with the ultimate goal of achieving environmental literacy for all of California’s 6.2 million K–12 students.
