Sustainability Advisory Committee

Last Updated: 9/30/2020 4:25 PM

Committee Charge:  Whereas the RSU5 Board of Directors recognizes the importance of promoting practices that strengthen the sustainability of RSU5 operations and facilities, while providing opportunities for environmental learning, we hereby charge the RSU5 Sustainability Advisory Committee (SAC) to inspire a sustainability ethic or mindset in RSU5 employees, students, and departments with the intent of identifying greener opportunities for RSU5 while being fiscally responsible.

The SAC will reference a multitude of documents as resource materials to influence their decision-making.  These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Sustainability plans from other school districts;
  • RSU5 Mission and Vision documents; and
  • Other related materials.

Decision-Making Considerations:  The SAC will strive to build consensus among committee members when making recommendations to the RSU5 Board of Directors.  Final authority for all decisions relating to the sustainability plan rests with the RSU5 Board of Directors.

Meetings:  Monthly meetings of the SAC will typically be held the first Tuesday of each month from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. at the Superintendent’s Office (17 West Street, Freeport).  The initial meeting will be held on April 2, 2019. Additional meetings may be scheduled as needed.
