WASHINGTON (AP) -- Three schools in Kansas have been awarded "green ribbon" honors from the U.S. Department of Education

The department said in a release Monday that the schools are Eisenhower High in Goddard, Erie High in Erie and Brookwood Elementary in Leawood.

The federal agency began the Green Ribbon Schools program last year. It honors schools that use a comprehensive approach to sustainability by cutting utility costs and providing healthy learning environments.

The Kansas schools given the one-year designation were among 78 honored nationwide.
