School greening efforts in the Montecito Union School (MUS) have been guided by a comprehensive Sustainability Plan since 2011, creating a focused roadmap framed by the Three Pillars of Green Ribbon Schools. Efforts include programs to improve composting and recycling efforts at lunchtime, invigorate the environmental education curriculum, and build partnerships in the community. Funding from the California Clean Energy Jobs Act (Proposition 39 External link opens in new window or tab.) jump started school investment in a high-efficiency LED lighting retrofit.
