Sample School Resource Mgt Policy
Whereas, the ___________________________________   Governing Board recognizes the responsibility of the District to reduce the waste of energy and other resources to as low a level as possible with a focus on occupant comfort, cost effectiveness, and assuring that equipment is used only as needed without compromising the basic mission of the District;   and
 
Whereas, the Board desires to help students, staff and members of the community understand the need for the wise use of resources and recycling; to promote an understanding of the relationship between resource conservation program efforts and the quality of our environment;
 
and
 
Whereas, the Board recognizes that a portion of the funds saved as a result of a resource conservation program should be reallocated to further support such efforts and the remainder can be sued in support of other District needs;
 
and
 
Whereas, the Board recognizes that resource conservation programs are best accomplished when resource conservation management is coordinated with education and training.
Now, therefore, be it resolved that the Board allocate sufficient resources to implement a program of effective Resource Conservation management and education. That the Superintendent be directed to formulate and maintain a District Resource Conservation Management Plan that includes resource reduction and recycling goals, a strategy to increase resource conservation, enhance recycling awareness among staff, teachers and students, and development of a shared savings plan. Also, develop procedures to conserve resources and increase recycling, and initiate and maintain a system to monitor resource consumption and recycling. Progress in carrying out this plan shall be reported to the Board at least on an annual basis.
