The 18-year public-private partnership included the City of Boston, Boston Public Schools (BPS) and the Boston Schoolyard Funders Collaborative.  We worked closely with the Mayor's Office, the Boston Public Facilities Department, BPS Science and Literacy Departments, BPS Facilities Management Department and the BPS Wellness Coordinator.  We also collaborated with public artist Ross Miller, urban environmental health expert Dr. Russ Lopez, landscape management consultant Neil McCarthy and non-profits who share our interests in improving health and wellness of Boston's children, and in improving academic achievement using BSI schoolyards and outdoor classrooms.
