854: Energy Utilization Management

The Hopkins School Board recognizes the necessity of using energy resources efficiently and wisely and acknowledges that the successful implementation of this policy is the joint responsibility of board members, administrators, teachers, and staff, and requires the cooperation of students, parents and community members who use our facilities. Toward that end, we will schedule the review of the procedures and regulations accompanying the Energy Utilization Management Policy on an annual basis and consider potential energy savings strategies available to us. Such measures may include investments with paybacks in the form of energy utilization savings, using alternative sources of energy, examining the energy efficiency of district equipment and fuel/energy usage (water, gas, electric, technology). We will not compromise the safety or air quality of our students and staff while exercising sound environmental and financial judgment.
