East Cobb Schools Get Clean Air Props
Dodgen, East Side, Garrison Mill, Mount Bethel, Timber Ridge and Tritt were recently recognized for their efforts.
Six East Cobb schools recently received the Clean Air School designation from the Clean Air Campaign, according to the Cobb County School District's news blog.
Dodgen Middle School, East Side Elementary, Garrison Mill Elementary, Mount Bethel Elementary, Timber Ridge Elementary and Tritt Elementary were among the 26 Cobb schools, and more than 300 across Georgia, to participate in action-based learning projects focused on reducing air pollution and educating students about sustainability and air quality.
Clean Air Schools are encouraged to implement a “No Idling” program and promote school bus ridership and carpools in lieu of single-driver drop-offs.
