Evergreen Public Schools

Evergreen Public Schools is a K-12 district located in Vancouver Washington. The district serves over 27,000 students, with 2.9 million square feet of building space.

To date, the District has reduced energy usage over 40% since 2008 and joins the Better Buildings Challenge to further reduce an additional 20% over the next 10 years. This effort is supported by the school board, administration, staff, and students with a strong emphasis on staff comfort and learning conditions. Staff and students are engaged in activities that focus attention on, and encourage, energy reduction. The facilities team evaluates renovation projects with an eye towards energy savings for remodels, upgrades, or repairs. Those involved with equipment purchases consider the efficiency of the equipment and utilize ENERGY STAR products whenever applicable and appropriate administrative staff are trained on current trends in efficiency as they relate to Maintenance, Facilities, and IT.
