A school building is a centerpiece of a community where learning, work, and other important gatherings occur. The purpose of this toolkit is to help communities create learning environments that are healthy, productive, and energy efficient. Understanding that designing and constructing a new school building is a major undertaking for a community, this toolkit provides best practices, resources, and other guidance that inform efforts at the local level. Material contained within this toolkit was created for a variety of key stakeholders, such as school building committees, facility directors, business managers, superintendents, interested citizens, and others. The intention of this guidance is to equip these important stakeholders with reliable information that can be used at certain intervention points throughout the development process of a healthy, zero energy school building.
