The Student Climate Action Council (SCAC) is a council of 14 students working with MCPS to represent clusters of the county to advance sustainability initiatives and create a greener school system by holding MCPS accountable for their climate goals.
OUR VISION is to create an entirely Green school system, increase the number of innovative sustainability projects, and allow the creative students of MCPS to be given a chance to enact their ideas, for a better, and safer environment.
OUR MISSION is to help foster innovative sustainability projects created by the students of MCPS. Students who make up the council represent different clusters throughout MCPS giving a better perspective on the problem of sustainability and allowing proper insight into what’s happening in these clusters. SCAC works to ensure that MCPS is fully represented, and has an opportunity to fund student ideas. This council will review and discuss grant applications to ensure our funding goes towards innovative ideas that help tackle climate change effectively in a local community.
