Orig. Code(s): FECBA
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.
