The Tahoma School District is committed to educating responsible citizens who will contribute in positive ways to the local and world community. We believe that one of the most critical issues facing our young people is the issue of sustainability. If our environment is to support future generations, then our young people must have the knowledge, skills and ability to find creative solutions to the problems we have created and make choices today that preserve and protect tomorrow's world. We believe that sustainability education must be integral to our curriculum. To this end, we are creating a scope and sequence of units beginning in kindergarten and culminating in grade 12 that use the environment as a context for learning, investigate environmental challenges, promote critical and creative thinking, and incorporate a call to action where students contribute to improving the local and world environment. Students must encounter the environment in personal ways through field experiences, learn strategies for decision making and problem solving, and work collaboratively to solve complex problems that challenge the well-being of our world.
