We have worked hard to make the Madison Metropolitan School District a community leader in energy conservation for several reasons. Clearly, it provides many ways for us to reduce our operating costs and save money but more importantly, it allows us to model for our children and the community we serve, some of the steps each of us must take to protect our Earth.

We have reduced expenses and saved energy within our technology infrastructure through our use of desktop energy management software, virtualizing our servers, improving the energy efficiency of our computing center and implementing a new document management system to significantly reduce our use of paper.  We have several things we are targeting for further improvements in the year ahead.  We must be creative, and continue to take this issue very seriously and we are proud to be leaders in our efforts to save energy.
