Curriculum

Energy Education is a critical component of the Energy and Sustainability program in Prince William County Public Schools. Our curriculum is based on curriculum designed by PLT Greenschools! The national Project Learning Tree program is characterized by three components:

  1. High quality instructional materials for grades PreK - 12;
  2. Carefully designed professional development; and
  3. Student led activities supported by PWCS Office of Facilities Services.

Become a PLT Greenschool! to create healthier schools and save money. Participating schools can earn $1,800 per year. For more information on how to participate, visit our curriculum page.
