2. Mid-Atlantic Sustainable Schools FieldScope Trainings

Are you interested in what Sustainable Practices Schools are doing in Maryland? Are you applying to be a Green School? Check out the new Mid-Atlantic Sustainable School (MASS) FieldScope website ( This website provides an opportunity to showcase your school’s sustainable (or “green”) efforts! It’s also a resource that you can use to locate other schools that might advise on your own efforts. 

All Maryland Green School applicants are required to add their sustainable practices (formerly called “best management practices” data) into the MASS FieldScope site. Applicants need only do this once every four years, but are encouraged to update it every year.  Not all categories must be filled out to meet the Green School Application requirement. Existing Maryland Green Schools are also encouraged to add their schools to this important resource.

What: This webinar will review entering Sustainable Schools Data into FieldScope, finding other schools on the mapping tool and creating different kinds of maps.  This is a workshop tailored towards all/any schools in Maryland who are interested in entering their school on the map and/or seeing what other schools are doing in the region.


  • October 20, 4:30pm- 5:15pm. 
  • November 17, 2014, 4:30pm- 5:15pm.
