*Updated as of XX/XX/2020
TEXAS HOUSE BILL 3693 (HB3693)
The passage of House Bill 3693 (HB3693) by the 80th Texas Legislature is intended to provide additional provisions for energy-efficiency in Texas. Adopted with an effective date of September 1, 2007, HB3693 is an additional mechanism by which the state can encourage energy-efficiency through various means for School Districts, State Facilities and Political Jurisdictions in Texas.
TEXAS SENATE BILL 300 (SB300)
Texas Senate Bill 300 (SB300) allowing school districts to establish a long-range energy plan to encourage districts to reduce electricity consumption and save the district money, rather than requiring every district to reduce their electricity consumption by 5% a year.
State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) Texas Cool Schools Program is an HVAC grant program for Texas public school districts. Utilities represent the third-largest spending category for Texas schools, and much of this expenditure is driven by old, inefficient equipment. The Texas Cool Schools grant program is intended to help six schools in our district to lower their operating costs by purchasing new and more energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

DISTRICT SHUTDOWN PROCEDURES
Since the school district is shutting down for the Summer Break, the Energy Management Department believes that the 2020 Summer Break would be an excellent opportunity for the District to save money on its utility bills.
