Submission

The Kentucky NEED (National Energy Education Development) Project has set its annual workshop on high-performance sustainable schools for March 10-11 at the Kentucky Community and Technical College System campus in Versailles.

School decision-makers, architects and engineers with plans for new school construction and/or renovation projects are encouraged to attend this two-day workshop.

Attendees will tour two high- performance schools, learn strategies from educators and design professionals with documented successes, and attend a catered exhibitor reception featuring high-performance technologies. Presentations will offer case studies and methods for both educators and designers that substantiate the financial savings and learner benefits of high-performance buildings.

Attendees will:

1. Learn how one architect met a district’s goal of a new facility that would have a positive impact on students and faculty by creating a better learning environment while decreasing the energy costs.

2. Learn how one district worked with its architect to create an early college and career center with a design that helps students accelerate their career path, whether to college or the workforce.

3. Tour the first school scheduled to be certified as a LEED Existing Building.

4. Tour a high-performance elementary school that continues to lower its energy consumption through high-performance operations.

5. Hear how teachers utilize their school buildings to teach math, science and other disciplines.

6. Talk with other administrators and design professionals.

7. Attend a catered reception and meet with exhibitors presenting technologies that support sustainable operations.
