Cherry Lane High Case Study: Restructuring a Large, Comprehensive High School to Small Schools [PDF]
Abstract: Cherry Lane has begun a multi-year effort to convert from a large, comprehensive high school into three small schools with unique identities. This case study of Cherry Lane High's first year of conversion looks at the background, design year, and early implementation of the multi-year process to becoming three small schools. By highlighting the impact on the school community and the major challenges they face, it is intended to inform the work of other districts and schools. The CCE research team presented this study at the American Educational Research Association annual conference in April 2003 in Chicago.

Lessons in Efficiency
Abstract: Anyone who is in contact with children—be they a teacher or a parent—knows one of the most successful ways to create social change is to start with the youth. Of the many efforts conducted throughout the US to create "greener" schools, water efficiency is one of the pivotal factors. Three of the 10 largest school districts are in Florida, which has been under water conservation measures for months. The fifth-largest school district is in Clark County, NV, another focus of water use concerns. Throughout the US, many governmental water agencies are partnering with local school districts in identifying and addressing water waste issues.

Playbook for Green Buildings and Neighborhoods
Abstract: This resource provides strategies, tips and tools that cities and counties can use to take immediate action on decreasing their contribution to climate change. These actions also promote economic development, build healthier communities, and strengthen energy self-reliance. A consortium of more than 20 cities, counties, non-profits, state and federal agencies, and utilities has produced the first phase of this Playbook to help promote the goals set out in the U.S. Conference of Mayors Climate Protection Agreement. Users can select from Green Buildings, Green Neighborhoods or Green Infrastructure -- and within these topics choose Learn, Plan, or Act options. The Playbook is designed both for communities that are considering taking first steps, as well as for those who want to take existing efforts to a new level. It is evolving as material is improved and added. Extremely easy to browse and navigate, the site is packed with information and photographs. A well-designed search screen has four ways to sift contents of the web site, allowing selection of just the right type of resource, organized under: case studies; model policy, codes and resolutions; presentations and speaking points; reports; software; training and training guides; and resource organizations. Information is also organized under other categories, including principles, approaches, setting goals, indicators, barriers, mainstreaming innovation, leading actions, multiple benefits, policy levers, facts and figures, definitions and FAQs.
