• Energy Dashboard
SSSAS monitors the use of electricity on each campus in its seven major buildings. The energy dashboard compares building performance to the week, month and year prior in order for students and faculty to remain aware of daily habits related to electricity. Monthly reports for each buildings are shared with faculty and staff and real time monitors
are displayed on each campus.
• Environmental Awareness Week
• Recycling and Waste Reduction
The week in April raises awareness on individual and collective practices related to waste, energy, and transportation. Assemblies, activities, competitions, and tree plantings are held on each campus during the week. Students and parents encourage families to walk, bike, carpool, or take public transport to school, as well as to be as waste-free as possible.
Campus initiatives include single-stream recycling, composting in all dining halls, single-stream recycling systems, and long-term awareness raising with the help of teachers, students and families. Our goal is to match or surpass the 48% rate of recycling in the City of Alexandria.• Students 4 Sustainability Conference
