Facilities Improvements

The Green Team decided to tackle making our building and campus more environmentally friendly.  We met as a team to determine priorities and worked with our facilities liaisons make a variety of changes over the course of a year including:

  • Composting yard waste including grass clippings and leaves
  • Reduced our “lawn space” to cut back on water and emissions associated with maintenance and upkeep
  • Integrating native plants in our landscaping
  • Incorporating weather stations, rain gauges, and other technology to decrease watering.
  • Adjusting our lighting and HVAC to reduce energy consumption
  • Defaulting to duplex printing/copying  to reduce paper use
  • Adjusting the heating/cooling schedule according to classroom usage
