Solar Project Groundbreaking

CCSD 46 Hosts Groundbreaking Ceremony

Community Consolidated School District 46 will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday, June 14 at 11:00 a.m. at Frederick School to begin the construction of a solar energy project that will bring clean, renewable energy to the District. Ground-mounted solar panels will be installed at Frederick and Prairieview Schools, and roof-mounted panels will be installed at Park Campus and Grayslake Middle School. In total, the four photovoltaic arrays will generate 2.4 megawatts of clean energy and provide 2,940,000 kilowatt hours of power to the grid. The project is expected to be complete in 2018.

CCSD 46 was looking for creative ways to lower operating costs and solar presented a perfect opportunity. Discussions around locations ensued with Performance Services, the company that installed solar arrays for the high school district and a competitive RFP was released for an energy savings performance contract. Performance contracting is a method of procurement that allows public entities to utilize an integrated design and delivery method to implement building efficiency improvements with performance guarantees.

Decreasing manufacturing costs coupled with increased productivity and SREC income have made solar a viable option for District 46. The District stands to potentially net $6.75 million over 30 years as well as capitalize on rebates offered by ComEd. The energy produced by the solar array is equivalent to the electricity needed to power an estimated 329 homes in a single year. The project will reduce greenhouse gases by 2,196 metric tons, equivalent to taking 470 cars off the road in a single year.

Late Start Info Graphic

Late Start Update for 2018

CCSD 46 recently conducted a survey of parents regarding support for early release days versus late start days. Initially it was thought that early release might be an option to the late start days, but upon investigation it was determined that early release days would not allow for the same type of staff collaboration across grade levels that we are now able to provide.

In an early release situations, our K-4 buildings would dismiss at 1:00 and the 5-8 buildings and Park Campus would dismiss at 2:00. This would prevent staff from different buildings working together. Additionally, we have many students who participate in after school activities who would need supervision for over an hour.

When we began to schedule collaborative work time for our staff, the high school calendar was one of the deciding factors. GCHS D127 has late start days each week. At that time parents requested that we follow the same schedule to allow older siblings to provide support for the younger ones.

We will continue to look at options, however, at this time the district will continue with the late start schedule for 2018-2019 school year.
