California is the largest state in the country, serving over 5.8 million public school students and 300,000 teachers, in over 1,000 school districts and 10,000 schools.
The California Department of Education‘s mission is to “provide a world-class education for all students, from early childhood to adulthood. The Department of Education serves our state by innovating and collaborating with educators, schools, parents, and community partners. Together, as a team, we prepare students to live, work, and thrive in a multicultural, multilingual, and highly connected world.”
Our partnership with the California Department of Education is moving environment-based learning into the classroom and beyond. We are proud to work with CDE on two fronts: leading Superintendent Torlakson’s Environmental Literacy Steering Committee to implement California’s Blueprint for Environmental Literacy, and to ensure that California’s Environmental Principles and Concepts are integrated in K–12 education statewide.
