School Boards Look Towards Green
School officials in Sherwood, Oregon are focusing on green initiatives as building plans for new schools evolve, according to The Oregonian. Although sustainable practices are a target, schools are also looking for ways to save money.
Officials voted to build the schools to meet LEED certification standards. A meeting between parents, teachers, school and city officials, and green building representatives resulted in a report that outlines how to design the buildings to meet green standards.
The report also outlines suggestions on what members would like to see in the buildings. This includes collecting rainwater for toilet flushing and incorporating money saving strategies.
