  • how others in districts across the country are addressing school security.
  • how Falls Church City Public Schools is approaching security in an increasingly urban setting.
  • a framework within which to consider future conversations about school security within the context of school planning and design.

C. Why Wouldn’t Zero Energy Schools be the New Norm Now That It’s Free?

For Virginia’s 1st Zero Energy School, Arlington Public Schools (APS) elected to purchase and own the Solar PV Array, however at their next school, Alice West Fleet Elementary, APS procured a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The PPA will enhance learning and place Solar on 5 of their schools including a large array at Alice West Fleet, making the school open and perform at 100% Zero Energy. Nationally this covers two of the three ways Zero Energy Schools are being procured. The third is through a Guaranteed Performance Contract. APS will share the details of this procurement process and how students learned from this process bringing the experience into the classroom through hands on tools and interactive dashboards about energy resourcing and sustainability. The speakers will present Jennings Creek Elem, an example of how a new Zero Energy Ready School utilized a GEPC to acquire a solar PV array making the school 100% Zero Energy at no cost to the School District.

D. Put a Box Around That Plan: Design Strategies to Align Your Learning Spaces with the Culture and Values of Your New Strategic Plan

Learning today is boundless: it happens anywhere, anyhow, by anyone, and at any time. Gen Z and Gen Alpha are diverse hands-on, minds-on collaborative creators, consumers, and innovators. As a result, school districts are rewriting strategic plans to look at teaching and learning more holistically. Many current strategic plans focus on a set of similar core goals, including interdisciplinary, student-centered learning experiences, collaborative partnerships and community experiences, college and career readiness, increased attendance and enrollment, teacher recruitment and retention, wellness, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. This discussion will look at the relationship between facilities and learning. We will review design principles that respond to the goals of your strategic plan and how to design and adapt learning environments that foster measurable, goal-oriented strategic success for your both your students and educators. Design strategies will encompass multiple scales, from large-scale capital projects to small, targeted, cost-effective interventions.

Learning Objectives:
  • Investigate how districts throughout Virginia are planning for tomorrow’s learners.

Breakout Session 2

A. From Isolation to Interdependence: Co-locating STEM and CTE in Response to a Shifting Economy and Workforce Needs

When STEM education burst onto the scene a little over a decade ago there was little understanding of what it was or how to effectively integrate it. Today it’s part and parcel of 21st Century instruction, and schools are pushing beyond STEM isolation toward interdependence particularly when combined with career and technical education (CTE). The new Academies of Loudoun (AOL) in Virginia is one such example. By forging an alliance between three previously independent programs – the Academy of Science, the Monroe Advanced Technical Academy, and the Academy of Engineering and Technology – AOL sought to dismantle traditional silos and leverage opportunities found at the intersection for the benefit of all. Now, one year after it opened, planners and designers will reflect upon the process that led to a new understanding of interdependence, and share lessons learned during planning, design, and operation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the what, why, and how of STEM and CTE education.
  • Understand the difference between integration and interdependence within the context of the new Academies of Loudoun.
  • Understand the case for more integrated learning pathways.
  • Understand flexibility within the context of a shifting economy and workforce needs.

B. Making the Grade: How IEQ in Schools Affects Student Performance

What is the most important factor in a successful school? When renovating or building a new school, what do school districts care about the most? Student achievement. This session will explore how high-performance design strategies can have a direct positive impact on student performance, and consequently how this information can be used to justify the value of high-performance design to clients moving forward. The session will present the content of a recent research report that studied schools across the District of Columbia, including recently modernized as well as non-modernized schools constructed across the 20th Century. This study explores both qualitative and quantitative data of each school’s Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) including daylight, thermal comfort, acoustics, and air quality. These data points are then cross compared with various performance metrics from each school to determine which factors did and did not affect student performance. All the sensors used for the study will be available during this session, and live readings will be occurring for attendees to test the Indoor Environmental Quality of the room themselves. Ultimately this study provides the much-needed justification for high-performance schools, showcasing that modernization can have a significant impact on student performance.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain how indoor environmental quality can affect student and teacher performance.
  • Gain awareness of tools that can be used to measure indoor environmental quality quantitatively and qualitatively
  • Analyze how modernized and non-modernized schools can impact indoor environmental quality and student performance
  • Apply this information to improve and measure the IEQ in your educational projects moving forward

C. Old Structure, New Story: Transforming an Outdated Education Facility into A Student-Approved Learning Environment

In 2015 Baltimore City kicked off a $1.1 billion program to renovate or reconstruct at least 23 city school buildings. Pimlico Elementary/Middle School, a cluster of early 20th Century buildings designed around the industrial model of education, was one of the schools to receive funding. The Pimlico School has deep roots in its community and is easily identified by its historic architecture. In this presentation transferrable to all dated structures – inside and out – a team of K-12 architects will talk about how modern building elements and creative space reconfiguration can result in a design that promotes collaborative, project-based learning. Despite the outdated Pimlico structure, the importance of its façade was paramount. The revitalization team knew they had to work creatively with staff, teachers, community members, authorities, and consultants to create a 21st Century Learning Space that would serve students optimally. By rethinking what existed, asking hard questions, and integrating tools for active learning spaces, the team was able to create a student-approved and parent-endorsed facility driven by the schools’ desired pedagogy while still respecting the past. Presenters will share insights, lessons learned, challenges they faced, and lead participants in a mock community meeting, with amplified decision-making tactics, demonstrating the power of good facilitation, community input, and effective needs assessment.

B. The Value of Outdoor Learning Environments: Enhancing Health, Well Being and Safety for Our Students and Teachers

In regard to school safety, focused attention still lies on how to handle an active shooter situation. However, there is an argument for that focus to shift to a more holistic approach in an effort to prevent such instances from occurring in the first place and encompass safety on all levels – not just the most extreme. We need to ensure that students feel safe and receive the day-to-day support needed to enhance their health (mental and physical) and well-being in a safe school environment. Research indicates the value of outdoor connections and the benefit to students’ mental health, leading to higher student engagement and test scores, and notably, fewer violent incidents. In this course, we will look at how outdoor environments can greatly benefit students through many different forms including outdoor education, outdoor play, outdoor experience, and outdoor exposure. In addition,we will review the outdoor environments at Douglas Elementary School in Wake County, NC and the difference these outdoor spaces have made in their educational environment.

Learning Objectives:
  • Participants will be able to understand how outdoor education can lower stress levels and decrease disruptive classroom behavior.
  • Participants will be able to understand how outdoor play promotes exploration and discovery and helps development of attention skills and social interactions.
  • Participants will be able to understand how outdoor experience encourages caring and empathy for other life forms, translating to social behaviors.
  • Participants will be able to understand how outdoor exposure enhances positive perceptions and academic achievement.

D. Achieving Low-Maintenance and High Performance: Finding the Sweet Spot of Sustainable Strategies for School Design

Schools’ operating dollars are some of the most precious of all public tax dollars – and are increasingly under strain. Small details can make a big difference in achieving sustainable goals. By incorporating common-sense solutions that conserve energy, schools can offer healthy indoor environments, support more productive, happy, and healthy teachers and students, and encourage stewardship of the environment. In addition, thousands of dollars in operating costs and be redirected back to the school budget to invest in programming, salaries, and capital improvements. Using the case study of Harrisonburg City Public Schools’ Bluestone Elementary School, this presentation will provide tangible, implementable strategies for achieving energy and dollar savings in the near-term while achieving long-term pay-back. Based on the first full year of measured results, Bluestone’s actual energy performance (18.7 EUI) is close to modeled (18 EUI) and 75% below the national average, meeting the current AIA 2030 Commitment. The net-zero ready design delivers over $100,000/year in avoided energy costs when compared to the national average and is future-proofed to evolve and expand with the school community. The architect worked with the Center for the Built Environment (CBE) to develop a custom post-occupancy evaluation – which asked staff questions about safety, community, health and wellness, and sustainability – in conjunction with CBE’s standard K-12 post-occupancy survey. Pairing the results of this survey with specific building-level strategies, this presentation will highlight how specific sustainable design solutions can both uplift educational pedagogy while promoting a healthy, high-performance, low-energy school and culture.

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how one school division gained consensus on building a healthy, high-performance, low-maintenance, and net-zero energy ready elementary school by focusing on long-term benefits and savings.
  • Understand the actual annual savings recognized by building and operating a low-maintenance, high-performance school.
  • Understand strategies for improving indoor air quality while reducing energy use and building maintenance.

B. Learning Outside the Classroom: Strategies for Creating Effective Common Spaces in the Modern High School

New STEM and STEAM curricula encourage collaboration and interdisciplinary approaches. To effectively support the types of learning activities and interactions that must be able to take place, schools must include spaces outside of the classroom where students and faculty can come together in many ways throughout the school day. Large, shared common spaces such as libraries, cafeterias, and lobbies provide space for important functions in the modern high school. These spaces take up large amounts of space and are costly to build, but the typical “single function” design approach often results in spaces being unused or underused through large parts of the school day. This seminar will present several built examples where these spaces have been re-imagined to provide flexible open space to support 21st Century learning, help the school strengthen its sense of community, and dramatically improve utilization/value. In addition to architectural design elements, furnishings, finishes and technology will also be explored.

Learning Objectives:
  • Acquire new knowledge or skills
  • Build upon or expand on current knowledge or skills
  • Learn about best practices
  • Think creatively and develop new ideas
