Nebraska Department of Education's Application Process
Information for the 2012-13 school year application will be posted in the winter of 2013.
This prestigious award is given to select schools across the nation that The U.S. Department of Education (USED) Green Ribbon Schools recognizes as schools that save energy, reduce costs, feature environmentally sustainable learning spaces, protect health, foster wellness, and offer environmental education to boost academic achievement and community engagement.
Nebraska will participate in the pilot year of the U.S. Department of Education's Green Ribbon Schools' recognition program. This voluntary federal program rewards schools that meet criteria in three goals:
1. The school facility (grounds and building) has a "net zero" environmental impact;
2. The school environment has a "net positive" impact on the health and performance of students and staff members; and
3. The school's graduates are environmentally literate.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the USED will recognize schools where staff, students, officials and communities have worked together to produce energy efficient, sustainable and healthy school environments and to ensure the sustainability and environmental literacy of graduates.

Lothrop Magnet Center is located at 3300 North 22nd Street. Approximately 300 students in grades pre-kindergarten through fourth grade attend this Science and Technology magnet. These magnet themes are woven throughout the regular curriculum offerings. Lothrop offers all students unique, high quality experiences that promote literacy, mathematical competency, and the skills necessary to function in the 21st century. At summer science and technology camp, students develop inquiry-based projects, create computer-based presentations, and learn to create graphics. Parent and community involvement are very strong components of this magnet's success. Workshops on parenting skills, nutrition, and computer skills, as well as open forums to address parental concerns, are offered. Volunteers from community organizations also provide weekly tutoring services. The staff, parents, and community are committed to providing Lothrop students an educational program that will prepare the students for the future.
