Arc supports schools, educators and students

Arc is pleased to partner with USGBC’s Center for Green Schools to provide data-driven tools for K-12 teachers, students, school facility staff and district managers.

These new tools turn schools into living laboratory where students can learn about science, technology, and mathematics concepts and collect, analyze, and score data about their school building.

This partnership supports the Center’s long-standing mission to provide green schools for all within this generation. This includes providing students will high quality, relevant environmental and sustainability education.
