C-TEC: Ohio's First All-Green School
Krall, Angie
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v84 n3 p30-33 Apr 2009
In Ohio's Licking County, the Career and Technology Education Centers (C-TEC) is a leader in the green movement. This eco-friendly school incorporates environmental sustainability in all aspects of its programming and is the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified public building in the state. While eco-friendly schools in states like New York and California are becoming the norm, the green movement has been slower in the Midwest. When C-TEC broke ground, Ohio and surrounding states Indiana and West Virginia had no green schools, while Michigan and Pennsylvania had only a few. Although the school has been open for two years, it is still being discovered and sought out as a model. This article describes the environmentally friendly conservation strategies behind the construction of the C-TEC.
