In 2010, the Board of Education approved a resolution to join The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) as a CHPS District. This approval was in addition to a 2007 approval of design standards, which included high performance features.
The District has also implemented the CHPS Operation Report Card (ORC), a program that benchmarks current performance of existing schools, provides a report card of results and makes suggestions for improvement. The ORC advances the standard for the maintenance, operation and improvement of all school buildings – high performance and otherwise. Facilities staff will continue to implement the most advanced proven standards to all design and constructions. We will also focus on renewable energy options and the implementation of such energy on our sites.
