Green Schools

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description An ongoing initiative of the Connecticut Green Building Council (in cooperation with the CT DEP) is to promote the transformation of schools in CT to green, high-performance buildings. Launched in February 2005, this initiative is operating on three tracks that include a stakeholder process, an educational outreach effort, and an inventory of all public school buildings. Upon conclusion of the stakeholder process, a final report will be published that identifies the obstacles to building high performance schools and suggests actions for overcoming these challenges.

The Connecticut Legislature recently passed a law requiring that any state-funded K-12 school construction or renovation meet the equivalent of a LEED-silver certification starting in January 2009. State regulations are in the adoption process that will delineate the specific requirements.

The new law will be discussed at a conference for school building stakeholders on September 25, 2007 in New Haven. The conference will also include an overview of the process of building a green school, a case study, and a tour of the Barnard Environmental Magnet School in New Haven. Barnard was built to green standards.
