AISD is Going Green

A savings of over forty thousand dollars a year... All because AISD is choosing to go green. In many school renovations across the district, AISD is making environmentally conscious decisions. AISD Communications Director Holly Shelton says they are "putting new windows in Tascosa High School. It's something that was going to need to be fixed regardless and we decided to put green windows in that actually have extra insulation in them. In other schools in Amarillo, Shelton says they're incorporating green features on an as-needed basis. If new carpeting is needed, they'll try to put in recycled carpeting, and recycled tile as well. Every year AISD is going to try to put a few more environmentally friendly features in it's schools.
