The District is committed to operating in a way that promotes sustainability and encourages activities that promote the efficient use of resources. As part of its extensive facilities modernization, the district added considerable solar power that generated well over a third of the district's electrical needs. During the 2017-2018 school year the district has a goal of reducing overall electric use by at least twenty-five percent. The district is also engaged in numerous other sustainability initiatives in the areas of water use, recycling, and hazardous materials.
We believe that sustainability efforts help us achieve four important things. First, they mean that we use our financial resources more efficiently. Second sustainability helps us reduce our carbon footprint. Third, we can educate our students on how to save their own money and that of their families through appropriate use of resources, and finally, we provide an example of how to act sustainable to our students through our actions and activities.
