Mote Elementary School combines solid academic programs with a variety of classroom organizational patterns to provide the most effective learning environment possible.  Upon completion of a districtwide assessment of school facilities, district officials recommended changes and additions to the building.

The district invested more than 5 million dollars in improvements to this facility.  The work was concentrated in the following major areas: 1) construction of additional classroom space and renovations to the library and rest rooms; 2) renovations and upgrades of the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system; 3) renovations to the electrical, telephone, and security systems; 4) upgrades to interior finishes and miscellaneous site improvements; 5) replacement of plumbing fixtures and associated piping; and 6) installation of a new fire protection/sprinkler system.

These improvements enable Mote Elementary School to continue exemplary programs for every student who comes through its doors. 

ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management were followed throughout the design and purchasing for these major capital projects.  Data compiled through Portfolio Manager help school officials ensure that these improvements maximize the use of their energy resources.



"At Mote Elementary School, modeling is one of the most important teaching strategies we use to educate our students.  We model what good writing looks like, we model what good reading sounds like and we model what it means to be good citizens of the earth.  Mote even had a group of students dedicated to starting a recycling program within the building.  It's the shared effort of staff, students and our families that make Mote a great, energy efficient, place to learn."
-- Aaron Selekman, Principal, Mote Elementary
