UES Participants Anderson Valley Unified School District Belmont-Redwood Shores School District Beverly Hills Unified School District Chico Unified School District Emery Unified School District Etna Union Elementary School District Hawthorne Unified School District Los Angeles Unified School District Mariposa County Unified School District Mare Island Technology Academy Pacific Unified School District Petaluma City School District San Carlos School District
Overview of UES Program Phase One design standards-based campus needs assessments related to waste at their school sites; conduct campus needs assessments; establish partnerships with appropriate local agencies and community groups; developing implementation plans for instructional activities that will integrate sixth-grade teaching with waste diversion and resource conservation practices; and, submit an implementation plan outlining proposed plans for integrating their instructional programs with waste reduction, and if they choose, water, energy and air resources. Upon approval by the CIWMB, the districts will receive funding for Phase Two.
Overview of UES Program Phase Two receive further professional development parallel to EAPP Implementation Institutes; develop and implement model education units incorporating waste diversion and service-learning; and, gather evaluation data in cooperation with CIWMB.
Principal Objectives Curriculum Alignment –Grade-level specific content standards –Standards-based learning objectives to provide the foundation for the Campus Needs Assessment Campus Needs Assessment –sequence of instruction; –links to adopted instructional materials; –Campus waste audit; and, –key understandings of site-based waste stream and resource conservation.
Principal Objectives Student Assessment Plan –Standards-based student assessment –Sample student assessment of waste diversion and other resource conservation activities Program Implementation and Evaluation Plan –work plan and timetable for implementation and evaluation
Campus Needs Assessment
Campus Needs Assessment — team’s overall instructional plan The CNA includes: clusters of content standards from multiple disciplines; learning objectives clearly connected to standards; school site waste audit that flows within the overall sequence of lessons and examines waste flow patterns on campus; opportunities for students to: discuss and analyze data; report their findings; consider implications of the results of their investigations; and, determine possible ways to address waste flow patterns. detailed lesson plans; student assessment strategies (learning, and/or behavior and attitudes); collaborative instructional team including educators and school staff; community partners; etc.; and, workplan and timeline for year one of the UES program
