Green and high performance school buildings offer students and teachers healthy and productive learning spaces and deliver cost avoidance on utility expenses to put money back into classrooms. School districts can implement policies, programs and practices to move beyond simply meeting code requirements and produce facilities that combat energy and climate volatility and deliver long-term value to the entire district. Delivering a green school requires an integrated design process, agreement of project goals, dynamic team communication and utilizing absolute energy targets to design and construct. During this interactive discussion, panelists will discuss stakeholder engagement, building assessment, design process, and technology applications used to guide their green school design projects.

School high performance experts from the field will showcase the success stories and lessons learned to encourage incorporating green school practices in school planning, design and construction to ensure a high performance outcome.

Growing a Green School Series
Join the Portland Green Schools Committee for the 2019 Panel Series: Growing a Green School. This four part series will offer guidance on navigating the complex landscape of stakeholder buy-in, funding mechanisms, design, operation and scaling green schools projects to be district-wide initiatives. These schools reduce the environmental and health impacts of schools today so that all students, teachers and administrators are given the opportunity to grow in a healthy and productive learning environment. Sessions will include presentations, case studies and moderated discussions. Participants will walk away from each session with replicable action items for integrating the green schools outcome into their school districts.
