Healthy Schools & Environmental Impacts

“Structurally sound and well-maintained schools can help students feel supported and valued. Students are generally better able to learn and remain engaged in instruction and teachers are better able to do their jobs, in well-maintained classrooms that are well-lit, clean, spacious, and heated and air-conditioned as needed. In contrast , when classrooms are too hot, too cold, overcrowded, dust-filled, or poorly ventilated, students and teachers suffer.”

United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights. 2014. “Dear Colleague Letter: Resource Comparability.” Washington, DC: US ED.

Many urban school districts are experiencing a decline in enrollment. Energia recognizes when enrollment decreases, so does the district’s funding, making it difficult for much needed school improvements. Increasing taxes for education capital projects in poorer communities can be detrimental to families. Providing an opportunity to create energy-efficient buildings and capturing the saved funds to convert legacy buildings or build new world-class facilities to benefit students and your community is our goal.
