In 1996, the school district completed a lighting retrofit in all of its schools and buildings, changing T12 fluorescent lights to T8 or T5 lights, incandescent to halogen capsylites and compact fluorescents, exit lights to LEDs, and all ballasts to energy savers.
An energy policy and plan was introduced at the start of the 2007-08 school year, which included simple guidelines such as turning off unneeded lighting, removing non-essential electrical appliances from classrooms, and shutting off or unplugging all items not in use.
-- Sent monthly energy update reports to the Assistant Superintendent of Business.
-- Sent reports to the Principal detailing the results of facility inspections.
-- Received newspaper coverage on presentation of ENERGY STAR.
"Central Elementary takes great pride in conserving energy. The staff and students do a great job of shutting down equipment, keeping classroom doors closed, and tuning off lights when they're not needed!"-- Peter Jochim, Principal, Central Elementary School
