Washington's High-Performance School Buildings: Report to the Governor and Legislature.

Web Abstract: 
Provides a status report on the implementation of Chapter 39.35D RCW High-Performance Public Buildings for Washington state K-12 schools. The law requires that all state assisted K-12 new construction or modernization projects over 5,000 square feet are designed and built to high-performance standards. Between 2006-2008, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) monitored 18 projects that volunteered to use the Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol (WSSP) before it became mandatory. This report presents the results and findings of their experience with implementing the WSSP, as well as the environmental and performance impacts and benefits resulting from the high-performance strategies they chose to pursue. Consistent and detailed financial information was not available at the time of the writing of this report. OSPI is currently developing a cost reporting tool for schools what will help with data consistency
