The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) has adopted the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED for Schools Rating System as part of its school design standards. The commission says that with $4.1 billion targeted for school facilities, at least 250 buildings will be registering for LEED Silver Certification within the next two years. The green schools initiative encourages all future OSFC-funded buildings to meet LEED for Schools Gold certification. There is a minimum requirement to meet LEED Silver certification.
