The Road to a Green District
Gutter, Rachel; Knupp, Emily
School Administrator, v67 n7 p12-18 Aug 2010
Green design, green construction and green operations for new buildings are rapidly becoming the norm for school districts throughout the country. Today, increased availability of green products and technology coupled with cost savings that are realized through an integrated design process mean that schools like Arabia Mountain High School can be built for costs comparable to conventionally designed schools within the same region. School districts that have realized the benefits of building new green schools are turning their attention to systemwide green operations, maintenance and purchasing practices so all students may enjoy the benefits of healthy schools that enhance learning. This article features the sustainable practices and policies of Arabia Mountain High School in Dekalb County, Georgia and offers ten suggestions derived from success stories shared by districts that are well on their way to going green.
