100% Renewable Electricity Resolution
Students across MMSD have started a petition for the MMSD Board of Education to establish a 100% renewable electricity resolution, including a provision to install rooftop solar systems at schools. This resolution would accomplish 3 key goals: provide students hands-on educational opportunities in a growing clean energy job market, save taxpayers and MMSD money to re-allocate to improving learning outcomes, and strengthen the MMSD's commitment to being an environmental leader in Madison. More information about the resolution can be found at , and individuals can sign the petition at .


Los estudiantes de todo el Distrito Escolar Metropolitano de Madison (MMSD) han iniciado una petición para que la Junta de Educación de MMSD establezca una resolución de energía 100% renovable, incluida una disposición para instalar sistemas solares en las azoteas en las escuelas. Esta resolución lograría 3 objetivos clave: brindar a los estudiantes oportunidades educativas prácticas en un creciente mercado de energía limpia, ahorrar a los contribuyentes y al dinero de MMSD para que se reasignen a mejorar los resultados de aprendizaje y fortalecer el compromiso del MMSD de ser un líder ambiental en Madison. Se puede encontrar más información sobre la resolución en , y personas pueden firmar la petición en .
