BEST partners, school districts, municipalities, non-profit organizations and even for profit developers are engaged in innovative practice in their communities which links public school facilities to educational quality, community revitalization, environmental responsibility, sound management and social justice. In the case studies described on this web site, BEST has collected source documents that can be used as templates to replicate this work.
We are also interested in documentation of other projects that can serve as examples of effective practice which advance the objective of high performance school buildings for all children. If you know of such an example, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
