Participation in Sustainable Jersey for Schools is FREE and voluntary
Sustainable Jersey is a nonprofit organization and participation in the program is not mandated or regulated by the state of New Jersey.
For schools to become certified with Sustainable Jersey for Schools both the district and the school must first be registered with the program. Registering does not obligate a district or school to attain certification for the school.
School districts must register to participate in the Sustainable Jersey for Schools certification program BEFORE any school in the district can register. Once the district is registered, individual schools in the district can register.
Sign-In or Sign Up for a Website Account
The person responsible for registering the district or the school must be signed into the website. If they do not already have a personal account, they will need to sign up for one on our website.
District Registration Process
Pass a Resolution to Participate
