*Make sure that your child gets a balanced breakfast each morning.

*Please have your student arrive at school on time.

Energy Incentive Challenge

Recently our district applied to earn the Energy Star Certification.  We sent in Energy Star applications for 44 of our facilities and ALL 44 qualified.  This is an amazing feat because in order to qualify a building must score in the top 75 percentile compared to other schools around the nation.  Our district average score was 99, with many schools scoring a perfect 100.

This certification process for Energy Star is not an easy one.  Air quality, lighting quality, and the overall Engery Use Index readings and calculations of each facility are taken into account.  This data, along with many other data points, are used to compare our K-12 facility to other K-12 facilities throughout the country.  We then receive  a score based on the grading criteria outlined by Energy Star. 

Way to go Nebo School District! We are an  Energy Star leader in the state.
