Research includes interviews of sustainable school recognition programs and a sample of school across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed about implementation of best management practices (BMPs) on school properties and connections to teaching and learning. A GIS product is also being created to help Chesapeake Bay Program partners assess the status of BMPs on school properties and prioritize efforts to increase installation of BMPs. The project also includes a report with recommendations and development of a decision matrix to help make prioritization decisions.
