Lake Washington School District (LWSD) was accepted today into the League of Innovative Schools, a national coalition of forward-thinking K-12 school districts organized by Digital Promise, a nonprofit organization with the mission to accelerate innovation in education and improve the opportunity to learn for all through technology and research.
Resource Conservation Management
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."
