Licking Heights Schools: Enabled teachers and kids in the farther wing of the school to stop wearing winter coats to class and saved money

The new superintendent at Ohio’s Licking Heights school district thought the cost for heating and cooling all 5 of its school buildings was high, but one 7-year-old elementary school in particular stood out. Its energy bills were double that of a similar school just down the road. It was also plagued by uneven heating. To keep warm, students and teachers in the far wing of the building often wore hats and coats during class.
