The Energy Action In Schools program brings students and school administrators  together to reduce energy costs in their buildings, while learning about energy efficiency.  The program provides funding and training for the schools that take part, as well as assisting the schools in energy use behavioral audits twice during the school year.

Fifteen Indiana schools will be taking part in the Energy Action in Schools program this school year. Each school will form Energy Action Patrols, made up of students,teachers, administrators and facilities managers to find ways to conserve energy in their school buildings. The program is made possible by federal grant funds administered through the Indiana Office of Energy Development.

 

These schools are taking part in the program during the 2011-2012 school year:

o Chrisney Elementary School (Spencer County)

o Clark Pleasant Intermediate School (Johnson County)

o Clifty Creek Elementary School (Bartholomew County)

o Eads Elementary School (Lake County)

The schools selected for the program will receive training for facilities managers/energy managers on how to provide behavior training as well as education programs to support energy management efforts in schools. They will also receive Energy Patrol modules for classroom instruction. These patrols, made up of students with teacher support, will monitor energy usage in their school building and make recommendations on how to save energy. The schools will also have a behavioral audit performed twice a year, including assistance with tracking energy savings from their behavior modification efforts.The Energy Action in Schools program is provided by the National Energy Foundation (NEF)with federal funds administered by the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED).
