LEED Logo

The Commission's Green Schools program has been in existence since September 2007, when the Commission adopted LEED for Schools® as the standard for K-12 school projects.

The LEED for Schools Rating System is a comprehensive tool that looks at design and construction practices including classroom acoustics, indoor air quality, selection of building materials and energy efficiency. The system is based on prerequisites and credits that address seven areas: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, innovation in design and regional priority.

Once design and construction for a building are complete, its systems have been tested, and it has met LEED standards, a project is eligible for one of four levels of recognition based on the number of credits obtained: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum.
