Environment and Sustainability Education
OSPI's goal for environment and sustainability education is to support academic success and life-long learning, and to develop a responsible citizenry capable of applying knowledge of ecological, economic, and socio-cultural systems to meet current and future needs.
Environmental education is a mandatory area of study in Washington, required by WAC 392-410-115.
The state's K–12 Integrated Environmental and Sustainability Learning Standards describe what students should know and be able to do at each grade level.
OSPI and E3 Washington led the development of the Washington State Environmental and Sustainability Literacy Plan.
