OASD Energy Education Program
Thanks to everyone's efforts to go "green," the district's energy savings resulting in savings of $610,980 or 36%. Wow! The success of this program depends on everyone. Special thanks to the maintenance staff for making changes in the heating and cooling systems; custodians for setting back each night; teachers for reducing energy waste in their classrooms; and principals and staff for coordinating efforts in their schools to save energy.
Examples of energy efficiency around the district:
- The OAC, lobby area and art gallery are now being lit with new dimmable LED lamps. LED lamps use a fraction of the energy of conventional incandescent lamps.
- LED bulbs installed in the OHS Cafeteria and Library
- The flagpole outside Summit Elementary is also being illuminated by LED
Recycling in our Schools
OASD has established a "Green Team" to take the great efforts already in place around the District to the next level. The focus will be centered around reducing our environmental footprint, expanding recycling programs, and improving overall environmental sustainability. Changes that have been implemented:
- Recycling receptacles inside Rux Stadium and the soccer stadium at OHS
- Single sort recycling in all classrooms, offices and common areas. This includes improved bins that are consistent throughout the District.
- Improved signage in all buildings to help improve recycling efforts.
- Milk carton recycling in all cafeterias and 4k and 5k classrooms.
