 As a caring, diverse community with a tradition of putting its children first, St. Louis Park Public Schools ISD 283 ensures that all students attain the highest level of achievement and become contributing members of society, and offers everyone high quality opportunities for lifelong learning, by providing multiple pathways to excellence and challenging each learner to meet high standards, within a safe environment.

The district educates approximately 4,200 K-12 students across seven school buildings in an inner tier-suburb of Minneapolis. St. Louis Park Public Schools has assessed the energy performance of all of its schools and undertaken improvements, achieving a 10 percent improvement compared to its 2004 baseline in 2006 and a 75 or better portfolio-wide energy performance rating in 2008. A partnership with the Schools for Energy EfficiencyTM (SEE) program has saved the district $272,906 in utility costs over the last two years by adopting no- and low-cost strategies. The district realized these savings by educating staff and students about important behavioral changes in energy use, performing lighting retrofits, and adjusting temperature set points. In addition, St. Louis Park Public Schools showed its commitment to energy efficiency by adopting a district-wide energy policy in February 2006.
