CHPS Designed

Design with CHPS in Mind

CHPS Designed™ is best for a school district or design teams that have significant experience and internal resources to ensure that the project is constructed as designed. CHPS Designed helps design teams manage the points that they are claiming through a project scorecard. This scorecard is a useful tool for school districts and CHPS project managers to monitor compliance with the CHPS credits and prerequisites. The scorecard offers a checklist for points earned, and can be used to designate responsible team members and track compliance with credits. Traditionally, project teams pursuing CHPS Designed have been on their own to navigate the CHPS Criteria. Effective November 13, 2013, there will be a nominal registration fee for CHPS Designed projects allowing us to provide project teams the following suite of services:

  • Prompt screening of the completed CHPS Designed scorecard
  • One CHPS Criteria Interpretation
  • CHPS Designed Certificate at the completion of the project
  • Use of the CHPS Designed logo in conjunction with the project
  • Availability of local CHPS representative for recognition ceremony

CHPS Designed Registration Fees, effective for all projects that register after November 13, 2013, are as follows:

  • CHPS Members $900
  • Non-Members $1,250

CHPS Designed does not include a third-party review, and the accountability of the project rests on the school district and design team. However, CHPS will be implementing an audit process for CHPS Designed projects. More details about the future audit process will be released on the CHPS website. CHPS will recognize each participating project in the CHPS Schools Database. Free CHPS Designed recognition is not available in California for schools that received High Performance Incentive funding through the state after January 2011.
