Sustainable Schools. IssueTrak: A CEFPI Brief on Educational Facility Issues.
This report examines how an integrated design of the educational program and a school facility that responds to the economic, environmental, and social needs of a community create sustainable schools. It explores the effect buildings have on the earth's natural resources, the steps districts can take toward sustainable school design during extensive renovation and construction projects, and what constraints exist when applying sustainable design and construction to school facilities. An outline of key components of a sustainable school project are illustrated using two case studies. (GR)
