Could you prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from a fully extended firetruck ladder? Rose Hill Elementary fifth graders had two weeks to design a method for doing just that.
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."
