April 26, 2010 (San Francisco, CA) – In celebration of National Healthy Schools Day, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools has released the Operations Report Card (ORC), a new low-cost, online tool that benchmarks current performance, analyzes existing conditions and recommends green and healthy improvements for existing school buildings.

“With the introduction of the Operations Report Card, CHPS is providing an affordable solution for improving the performance of the 130,000 existing schools in the United States,” said Bill Orr, executive director of CHPS, at a virtual press conference on Monday to announce the launch of the ORC. “When we talk about green schools for all students, we shouldn’t just be talking about the lucky few that get to attend a newly constructed high performance school. Now we have a tool that provides every school with the opportunity to become a high performance school.”

This new program allows both high- and low-performance schools to benchmark their current performance and receive suggestions for improvement in five categories: energy efficiency, thermal comfort, visual comfort, acoustics, and indoor air quality.
