The California Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI) came about in response to two pieces of legislation that were passed in 2003, AB 1548 (Pavley, Chapter 665, Statutes of 2003-PDF) and AB 1721 (Pavley, Chapter 581, Statutes of 2005-PDF).  California's education and environment agencies have worked together to create an engaging environment and standards-based curriculum that teaches students about their relationship with the environment.

The EEI Curriculum at a Glance:

  • State Board of Education approved.
  • Teaches academic standards through an environmental lens.
  • Includes California Connections stories that relate the academic standard to relevant California topics to make learning relevant.
  • Aligns EEI lessons to adopted instructional materials making it easy to know where to use the EEI lessons as replacement lessons.
  • Includes visually stunning photos and maps designed for the EEI Curriculum by the National Geographic Society.
  • Cultivates environmental literacy for today's K-12 students in an engaging way.

If you need more detailed information on the EEI Curriculum, please choose an item on the list to the right.  If you have additional questions, please contact our office and we'll be happy to assist you.
