Each application is reviewed three times by volunteers. Here is the Green Schools Review Rubric 2019.
Submit the Application
Everyone has different ways to create their own green school applications, and MAEOE is flexible. We are suggesting that schools use an electronic format such as a free online web-design program like Weebly, Prezi or submit a PowerPoint presentation. Some schools are creating the application as part of their school's current webpage.
Send all electronic applications materials to email@example.com via an email. The Application's Cover Sheet should be a separate attachment/file from the main application. All pieces of the application can be attached to the same email. In the subject line, please put the name of the school. If you are using Google Docs, please use the "Get Shareable Link" in the upper right hand corner and send the link to us. Make sure when sharing, you have it set to "anyone with this link can view."
You may also mail in your application materials. In the envelope, include the cover sheet and your application (on a USB or CD). Mail it to: MAEOE, 3430 2nd Street, Suite 300, Baltimore, MD 21225.
You will receive a confirmation email within 8 days of your submission. Because of the number of applications we receive on the due date, you are not guaranteed a confirmation until then. If you do not receive this confirmation, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not forget to submit a cover sheet (document found in "Requirements to Apply" page) with your application and to input your metrics (survey link imbedded in the "Application Guide" and on the "Requirements to Apply" in MAEOE's Green Schools page).
