Provides an update to Massachusetts Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Criteria, a green building rating system designed specifically for Bay State schools. The update reflects a move by CHPS to provide a core of green building benchmarks to states known as the CHPS National Core Criteria that can then be adapted by states. The new Core Criteria focus on not just the design of the building, but also pre-design planning, and the occupancy of the school. It also includes benchmarks for the building's site selection, water efficiency, acoustics, daylight in classrooms and environmentally-friendly building materials.
