Mead students experience reading with a simulated vision disability

What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.

Resource Conservation Management

File: ECE

The District recognizes the responsibility to reduce the waste of energy and other resources to as low a level as possible without compromising the basic mission; desires to promote an understanding of the relationship between resource conservation program efforts and the quality of our environment; and believes that resource conservation programs are best accomplished when resource conservation management is coordinated with education and training.

Therefore, the District authorizes the establishment of a resource and utility management program, whose purpose is to:

  • Conserve energy and utility resources so that the instructional program and support services can be effectively delivered while conserving resources.
  • Eliminate energy waste in our buildings.
  • Educate (through signage, publications, and periodic reminders) students and staff to contribute to energy efficiency in our District.
  • Every person will be expected to be an "energy saver" as well as an "energy consumer."
