Energy Conservation Classroom Guidelines

Each day we ask the employee's to be mindful of the energy they use.  We ask all employee's to do the following each night:

  • Turn off all computers, monitors, and printers.
  • Turn off any other items like calculators, coffee pots, and classroom/office lights before you leave each day.

For longer holiday periods of time, we ask that employee's do the following before leaving for the holiday break, including:

  • All computers in the classroom are shutdown
  • All monitors are turned off
  • All computer and interactive whiteboard speakers are turned off
  • Printers are turned off
  • Television and DVD players are turned off/unplugged
  • All personal refrigerators are cleaned out, unplugged and propped open (place a tray under the freezer if ice build-up is present) *Remove personal food items rom staff lounge refrigerator.  Custodians have been instructed to unplug refrigerators and throw out any food items.
  • Other appliances (microwaves, coffee makers, etc.) are unplugged
  • Electric hole punchers, staplers, and pencil sharpeners are unplugged
  • All class pets must be taken home for the break (HVAC) will be programmed in the "off" mode)
  • Miscellaneous electrical devices are unplugged.  Also known as "vampire energy" these devices continuously draw electricity at all times.  Examples:  cell phone chargers, stereos, boom boxes, paper shredders, speakers, iPod chargers, video camera equipment and battery chargers, night light, and plug-in fragrance warmers.
  • Lights are turned off at the switch (do not rely on the sensors)

Let's Start with $.50 per day

  • If each certificated employee reduces power consumption by $.50 per day
  • 180 school days per year = $90/yr/employee
  • Over 800 certificated employees in TUSD = over $72,000/yr
