CHPS Resolutions

Schools and districts across the country are realizing the benefits of becoming a CHPS School District by committing to high performance, healthy, green schools. If you are interested in passing a board level or trustee level resolution, we want to know! CHPS has many resources to support the process and recognize your commitment. If you are from a private school and would like to participate, please contact us. In order to pass a CHPS Resolution it is important to increase awareness and support for high performance, green healthy schools across the district. It is key to include teachers, designers, facilities and maintenance staff, administrators, parents and students in the decision to "go green". Planning for High Performance Schools is a great road map on how to get started.
Once you have everyone on board, bring it your school board for a district commitment. CHPS offers a sample district resolution and also offers examples of other districts' resolutions.
Requirements
In order to be recognized as a CHPS Resolution, the resolution must meet the following requirements:

  • A formal commitment must be made at the board or trustee level
  • A specific commitment needs to be made that ALL new construction and major modernization projects (as defined by CHPS) meet the CHPS Criteria minimum qualifying point and prerequisite threshold.
    Note: please do not specify a minimum point level as the qualifying point level may be subject to change in subsequent Criteria editions.
  • Submit an electronic version of the resolution, signed and dated, to CHPS at membership@chps.net

CHPS Resolutions
Since 2001, school districts and county offices of education have mandated minimum certification for all new construction and major modernizations.
