California district reasserts commitment to green

The San Marcos (Calif.) Unified School District has reasserted its commitment to building energy-efficient and environmentally friendly schools. The board approved a resolution directing staff members and design teams to explore and incorporate energy-efficient designs and practices in every project in the district. The green efforts will include bringing daylight into classrooms by using windows and skylights; improving air circulation to diminish the need for air conditioning and heaters; and keeping storm water on site. Many of those improvements are being incorporated into the newest San Marcos school, Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary, set to open in August.
