About this webinar

Research shows that sustainable school design is not only good for the environment, sustainable school design can have a direct impact on student achievement and teacher performance.  This course explores how to best support learning by examining ways to leverage building codes and sustainable design rating systems to optimize the design measures that most significantly impact student achievement and increase teacher retention. We will also discuss strategies for energizing and mobilizing the design team and stakeholders to build consensus and accountability for implementing sustainable design and apply lessons learned from case studies of High Performance School projects.
