Howard County Public School System
Howard County understands that while procuring green cleaning products, as mandated by Maryland House Bill 1363, is a great start to achieving environmental wellness, maintaining a sustainable green cleaning program also requires best practices and procedures designed to document effectiveness and measure success.

Congratulations to Howard County Public Schools on becoming the first K-12 school system in the state of Maryland to complete a green cleaning certification program.
