Forbush Elementary School
Map It!


Forbush Elementary is one of eight elementary schools in the Yadkin County School District. The majority of the 60,549-square-foot campus was constructed in 1989. The district is in its fifth year of its energy management program, which works to raise awareness about energy efficiency and encourage behavioral changes to help save energy and resources. The district's energy management team also regularly audits the schools to make sure all heating and cooling equipment is operating efficiently and on the correct schedules.

The energy management team has made improvements such as programmable thermostats, LED exit lighting, and upgrading to T-8 lamps. Forbush Elementary received a score of 95, well above average, to earn the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance the first time it measured its energy use in Portfolio Manager.




"The energy performance of Forbush Elementary can be directly attributed to the efforts of administration, teachers, staff, and children at Forbush. They help make sure that the school is operating at full efficiency."

-- Michael Pardue, Energy Manager, Yadkin County Schools
