Maryland Green Schools Progress Evaluation Executive Summary and Report

MAEOE's State Appropriation requires a yearly external evaluation to measure progress towards growth of Maryland Green Schools throughout the state.

In the first year of state funding, the evaluation led a quantitative assessment of progress toward its 50% goal. Specifically, evaluation comparatively examined the characteristics of schools that have and have not achieved MDGS status. This comparison sought to reveal the program’s current progress, areas of strength and opportunities for growth to reach the 50% target by 2026.
