The Douglas County School District will support a district-wide energy and utility management program. The program will focus on limiting expenditures for utilities thus allowing more effective use of the District’s financial resources. The program will also demonstrate the District’s social responsibility by a commitment to resource conservation and protection of the environment.
The energy and utility management program will use a systems perspective and provide strategies for integration and alignment of conservation efforts throughout the District. This will include use of best management practices and conservation guidelines for various departments and work groups including administration, instructional staff, and support staff.
Implementation of this policy will be the responsibility of the Operations and Maintenance Department, working in cooperation with staff and students.
