The Greening Index is a result of Superintendent Carvalho's 100-Day Plan Report - Los Angeles Unified is working to accelerate campus greening for students who lack access to the benefits of green spaces.
To ensure this is accomplished equitably, we developed a Greening Index that assigns a “green score” to help identify which
schools are most in need of greening resources.
The Greening Index is a combination of two measures of need: school site-specific need and community-based need. A school’s green score is based on the percentage of green space on a campus compared with its total area; and a score derived from the Los Angeles County’s Parks Needs Assessment, a countywide study that considers a community’s population density, its proximity to a public park, and the condition of the park.
