High Performing Schools on the way for Laramie County School District

Recently, the Institute for the Built Environment kicked off a “High Performing Schools” project with the Laramie County School District, based in Cheyenne, WY.  The green schools project will bring together teachers, students, administrators and community members to collectively envision how all schools in the district can be more energy efficient, employ renewable energy strategies, increase water efficiency, reduce waste, and create healthier school environments. 

IBE will be involved in teaching district teachers how to use their school building and grounds to teach about sustainability, work with students to understand the potential of clean energy and other emerging fields of study, and help school facilities staff to discover ways to increase efficiencies in their new and existing schools.
