The California Department of Education names Green Ribbon Schools as those at the forefront of nurturing the next generation’s capacity for creativity and critical thinking, thereby equipping them to become effective stewards of our environment.

MVWSD is one of only a handful of California districts to receive the Gold level of the California Green Ribbon School Award. Gold award winners are just a few points under national designation.

Pursuing the California Green Ribbon Schools award is a reflective process through which MVWSD is becoming a greener, more environmentally-conscious district. Our district passed resolutions and is pursuing regional and national certification that highlights our waste reduction and energy conservation. Our schools are powered by 77% renewable energy, are in the process of three-stream waste management/reduction, have implemented solar, and are developing Outdoor Greening and Learning Spaces.
