The state of New Hampshire is devoted to providing students access to the best possible school facilities. To achieve this goal, the New Hampshire Department of Education (NH DOE) and Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) are hosting a FREE, CEU-accredited, High Performance Schools Summit on November 9 at Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro, NH.
The physical environment in which students learn is vitally important to their long-term health and academic performance. High Performance Schools are energy efficient, easy to maintain and operate, environmentally friendly, and provide superior indoor environmental quality, leading to reduced operating costs and an overall improved occupant experience. One pathway to attain these benefits is through the use of the Northeast Collaborative for High Performance Schools (NE-CHPS) Design Criteria. NE-CHPS can be used for new construction, major renovation projects or in a phased approach to put schools on the pathway to high performance.
Join architects, engineers, facility and energy managers, utility program administrators, school business officials and others for an interactive summit focused on exploring the multiple benefits of high performance schools and making the business case for your next school project.

Part One: Recognizing the multiple benefits of High Performance Schools and featured school projects
What impacts does a high performance school have on building occupants and district budgets? Benefits of building to high performance standards include, amongst other things, improved indoor environmental quality and reduced operating costs. In addition to raising awareness of the benefits of high performance schools, this session will also feature a round-robin style spotlight of specific school features that can be found in NE-CHPS. Part one will highlight the following sections of the criteria: integration, operations & metrics, indoor environmental quality and energy.

Part Two: Featured School Projects
As a continuation of the session before lunch, part two will dive into the remaining sections of NE-CHPS: Energy and Engaging your Utility, water, sites & materials, and waste management.
Concord NH School Exemplars and facilitated discussion
In 2012, Concord School district built three new schools designed to meet NE-CHPS standards. The district and the design team went through the integrated design process to determine the important goals for the project. The resulting buildings are some of the most energy efficient schools while also providing superior indoor environmental quality for improved learning. In this session, we will share the design experience as well as the energy data on how the buildings are performing. Panelists will include design team members as well as the district building manager, and business administrator.
For this session, we’ll deviate from the typical conference workshop and explore a NE-CHPS Verified school. Led by the architects and facility management team, the tour will offer attendees an in-depth view of Kingswood Regional High School and its high performance features.
