Because of increasing costs and decreasing supplies of conventional energy sources, the Board recognizes the importance and need for energy conservation in the construction of new school facilities and renovation/updating of existing facilities.
Proposed construction and renovation projects which contain the most efficient energy-saving plans within an acceptable budget will have high priority. Energy-saving designs will be documented in the architectural evaluation and will comply with educational specifications and cost control checklists as determined by the Board.
A continuous study of energy problems and energy sources will be maintained for future planning.
