What is DeltaGreen?
The Delta School District has taken a proactive role in environmental stewardship for many years. Facilities have been constructed, renovated and retrofitted with energy conservation in mind, schools and other District sites have undertaken paper recycling programs and other waste reduction measures, custodial practices have changed to reduce packaging and incorporate more environmentally friendly cleaning products, and a number of other initiatives have been implemented to do our part in greening our operations. However, we need to do far more in the areas of climate action, conservation of non-renewable resources, water and the environment, and contribution to sustainable region principles established by Metro Vancouver. DeltaGreen is the strategy the Delta School District has developed and follows to bring us to sustainable excellence. Click here to view District Policy #4510 - Sustainability.
Monday, April 22, 2013 is the 8th annual Lights Out Canada, when schools across our country are encouraged to keep lights off during the daylight hours or for the entire school day where possible. Last year, the majority of our schools took part in the event and we strongly encourage our school communities to register and take part in this year's event.

As of March 7, four Delta schools have registered: Chalmers, Holly, McCloskey, Neilson Grove. To register your school, click here.
