The district introduced an energy plan at the start of the 2007-08 school year. Simple guidelines were initiated, such as shutting off unneeded lighting, removing non-essential electrical appliances in classrooms, and shutting off or unplugging all items not in use. Energy management controls and lighting retrofits have also contributed to energy savings.
Three schools in the district earned the ENERGY STAR in 2008, and seven were awarded the ENERGY STAR in 2009, including all three schools that repeated from 2008. 2010 has all seven again labeled and the High School now joins the list.
-- Monthly energy update reports to the Assistant Superintendent of Business.

"At Poston, we work very hard to conserve energy. All staff members are committed to reducing the amount of energy used by closing doors, tuning off lights, and eliminating unnecessary electronics. We are very proud to make a difference for both our corporation and our community."-- Jill Vican, Principal, Poston Road Elementary
