• State Agency Engagement

    Progress toward this outcome will require staff support and engagement at state departments of education.

  • Local Agency Engagement

    Progress toward this outcome will require district-level interest in implementing Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs).

  • Education Reform

    While national education reform has lent itself to using the environment as an integrating context for learning, the shifts in both teaching and learning these reforms require pose ongoing challenges to developing systemic approaches to environmental education. In addition, states and school districts must understand that MWEEs are not “add-ons” to existing curricula.

  • Partner Coordination

    Progress toward this outcome will require jurisdictions to collaboratively support cross-agency “collective impact” efforts.

  • School Community Readiness

    Progress toward this outcome will require school administrators to support and encourage the development and implementation of MWEEs. It will also require school administrators to hire sufficient staff and provide sufficient teacher training.

  • Funding

    Progress toward this outcome will require funding for student projects, sustainable school initiatives, professional development and transportation.
