  43. 43. GOING GREEN
  44. 44. Going Green <ul><li>Going green has become very popular in public and private schools. </li></ul><ul><li>So far at least 50 schools have gone green from the state of Maine to the state of California. </li></ul>
  45. 45. Why Go Green? <ul><li>A Healthy Environment </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher Retention </li></ul><ul><li>Financial Gains </li></ul><ul><li>Hands-on-learning </li></ul>
  46. 46. Going Green Examples <ul><li>Some examples of going green is as follows: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Using less energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using less water </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using paint that does not have lead </li></ul></ul>
  47. 47. USGBC <ul><li>According to the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) green schools use </li></ul><ul><ul><li>33 percent less energy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>32 percent less water. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Savings </li></ul><ul><ul><li>$60,000 in energy bills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>360,000 gallons (43%)of water a year. </li></ul></ul>
  48. 48. What We Would Save <ul><li>If every new school or every renovated school were totally green, in just energy savings alone, the school would save approximately $20 billion dollars over a 10 year time frame. </li></ul><ul><li>Although money is a driving force, there is more to going green than money. </li></ul>
  49. 49. <ul><li>A 2006 report by the American Federation of Teachers called “Building Minds, Minding Buildings” made some astounding discoveries. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>14 million students attend schools dangerous to their health and considered substandard. </li></ul></ul>
  50. 50. What Studies Show <ul><li>Studies show the physical condition of a school building impacts student learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Primary causes effecting student performance. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>lighting </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>air quality </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Three elementary schools were examined in California, Washington, and Colorado. </li></ul>
  51. 51. <ul><li>It was found that classrooms with abundant light had students with higher learning rates, and better test scores than students in classrooms that did not have the same amount of natural light. </li></ul><ul><li>A report by the U.S. Green Building Council showed test scores went up dramatically in Charles Young Elementary School after the school was renovated in Washington, D.C. in 1997. </li></ul>
  52. 52. <ul><li>Over half of our nations schools, approximately 115,000 schools, are linked to poor indoor air quality </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers and students spend most of their time indoors during the school day. </li></ul><ul><li>This leads to asthma attacks and respiratory infections which lead to more sick days. </li></ul>
  53. 53. Accommodations for Special Learners <ul><li>Aspects of ADA standards </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Access to resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Electronic catalogs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Stacks </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Fixed seating </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Check out area </li></ul><ul><li>Wheelchair access </li></ul><ul><li>Door opening/closing </li></ul><ul><li>Floor skid resistant </li></ul><ul><li>Heavy traffic area </li></ul><ul><li>Floor textures </li></ul><ul><li>Signage </li></ul>
  54. 54. Accessibility for Students with Disabilities

  56. 56. Guidelines <ul><li>When the guidelines were developed, they were developed with adults in mind. </li></ul><ul><li>The guidelines are adjusted when necessary when it comes to children. </li></ul><ul><li>These guidelines were developed by the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board in January of 1998. </li></ul>
  57. 57. Guidelines <ul><li>These guidelines are federal guidelines and were to be incorporated into the Americans Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines in 1998. </li></ul><ul><li>Schools, Staff, parents and designers have access to these guidelines. </li></ul>
