Helpful Hints for Operating Schools
MetadataShow full item record
Effective operation of school buildings in periods of both total and partial occupancy requires active management and proactive maintenance. Prevention, response, policy implementation, and adequate training are the main elements of a successful operations program. This paper will discuss helpful hints that schools can use to maintain a proper building environment and save energy at the same time. Two case studies will also be included. The first is the TEAMS program, developed by Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD. The second is an effective energy policy and program employed by Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD. The experience of the authors gained through assisting Texas school districts will also be shared.
