Energy Efficiency in the Building for Student Success program

Green Building Guiding Principles​
The principles support the goals in the Sustainability Management System (SMS) that relate to building design and redesign. 

BVSD Energy Website
Learn about all the ways BVSD is working toward our Net Zero energy goal and reducing energy use across the district. 

BVSD Energy Dashboard 
The dashboard displays real time energy data for all BVSD schools (with a few exceptions) and live solar data for BVSD schools with solar! Click on your school, and see how it compares to previous time periods and other schools. Contact the Office of Sustainability to set up a training or if you would like lesson plans relating to the dashboard.

Renewable Energy Technologies in BVSD

BVSD has many schools and facilities using renewable energy technologies, which has been possible largely through a power purchase agreement, grant opportunities, the Renew Our Schools Program, and the 2006 Bond Program.
