District Implementation

To become a CHPS School District it is important to increase awareness and support for high performance, green healthy schools across the district. It is key to include teachers, designers, facilities and maintenance staff, administrators, parents and students in the decision to "go green". Planning High Performance Schools is a great roadmap on how to get started.

In order to be recognized as a CHPS School District (effective 01/01/08) and qualify for CA-CHPS Credit PO1.1 (2006 edition) or LEI1.1 (2009 Edition), the district must:

  • Make a formal commitment at the board level, typically through a resolution.
  • Make a specific commitment that ALL New Construction, "Major" Modernization Projects (as defined by CHPS) need to meet the CHPS Criteria's minimum qualifying point and prerequisite thresholds. Please do not specify a minimum point level (such as 28 or 32), as minimum qualifying point levels may change in subsequent CHPS Criteria editions.
  • Make a commitment that for all operations, maintenance and minor modernization projects to use CHPS Best Practices where feasible and appropriate.
  • Send an electronic copy of the resolution dated and signed to CHPS ( CHPS has final jurisdiction over resolution approval for credit.
