The St. Johns County School District will implement operational strategies to save money during the upcoming summer months. These strategies helped produce energy savings of more than $800,000 during the summer of 2013.
By restricting building operations in all district facilities during the summer, energy consumption at each site can be reduced. This requires centralization of summer activities in buildings where the lowest energy consumption will occur.
Beginning on Monday, June 9, the district will operate on a four-day workweek, 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, closed on Fridays. All facilities will function in an energy conservation mode Friday through Sunday. Summer activities will be designed within the Monday-Thursday workweek and will be completed by July 31. The district will return to the normal five-day workweek beginning on Monday, August 4.
All schools and district offices will be closed during the week of July 14-18 and will reopen on Monday, July 21.
Beginning on Monday, June 16, the district will operate from seven high schools and one middle school serving as regional centers. St. Johns Technical High School will remain in its permanent location due to scheduled summer programs. All other facilities will function in an energy conservation mode. Maintenance Managers and custodial staff will work at the schools in their region on a rotating basis.
Each regional high school will serve as the operations center for the schools that have been assigned to that site. School administrative teams will work in designated areas of each high school. Staff will return to their regular sites on Monday, July 28.
Following are the assignments for each school:
|Pedro Menendez High||St. Augustine High||Sebastian Middle||St. Johns Technical||Allen D. Nease High||Creekside High||Bartram Trail High||Ponte Vedra High|
