Congratulations to members of the City School District of New Rochelle Facilities team who have successfully completed a training program called “The Pathway to Energy Efficient Building Operations.”

This training consisted of six sessions, each 3.5 hours, over four weeks. It taught principles of energy-efficiency awareness and practices. Participants were recently honored during a school district Department of Facilities meeting.
