Tecumseh School District Proactively Captures Significant Energy Savings
   Tecumseh schools proactively cut energy costs by more than $80,000 through an innovative program to reduce the district’s energy usage.
   “The Tecumseh Local Schools Board and Administration are committed to ensuring that the taxpayers’ investment in education is managed wisely, so when we learned about the ‘On Board’ opportunity, we knew it was something we should look into,” said Tecumseh Treasurer Ms. Debra Schock. “We are pleased to report that we have not only reduced our energy costs by $83,215 over the past year, but that we also have captured an 850 percent return on the investment in the program during the first year.”
   “On Board” is an elective program from the Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council, Waibel Energy Systems, and Dayton Power and Light dedicated to helping school districts reduce a major contributor of their operating costs - energy. During the first phase, a study identified districts that could benefit from an Energy Savings Agreement with Waibel. In the second phase, districts implemented Energy Conservation Measures to reduce energy consumption without impacting comfort in the buildings.
   “A significant source of energy use in Tecumseh Schools is Air Handling Units (AHUs),” said Joe Zimmerman, Controls & Integration Leader at WES. “Waibel Energy Systems implemented programming, which enabled these AHUs to better match airflow demands and as a result slow their fan speed. Additionally, WES implemented programming for the AHUs that prevented simultaneous heating and cooling – a significant inefficiency.”
   Through the district’s assertive decision to participate in the program, electric usage was reduced by 575,434 kWh and natural gas usage was reduced by 5,496 mmBtu over a period from July 2014 to October 2015. That reduced the bill by more than $80,000 over the course of the year and made the district eligible for $15,000 in rebates from DP&L, an incentive the energy company offered to encourage districts to participate.
   The district invested about $10,000 toward the Energy Savings Agreement and saved more than four times the guaranteed amount of $20,000 in the initial agreement.

TLS - Arrows' School of Advancement
     The Arrows' School of Advancement has been developed to meet the academic needs of students who do not choose to attend a traditional "brick and mortar" school.  Students are challenged with rigorous and relevant assignments and assessments that are designed to meet today's new standards of education for college readiness and career preparedness.  Our program offers schedule and coursework flexibility previously unknown to students and parents until now.  The Arrows' School of Advancement curriculum will prepare students for opportunities at the collegiate level or immediate employment upon completion of all high school diploma requirements.
     The Arrow's School of Advancement is a full-time online program for students in grades 6 through 12.  Students are required to complete one lab session per week at Medway School while the remainder of the week coursework can be completed at home.  The A.S.A. curriculum is designed to be self-paced; therefore, each student must be self-motivated to complete each course.  The ideal minimum grade for each course is a C minus.  If a student falls below a C minus average in a course, the student will be required to attend additional lab sessions (situations and circumstances may vary) each week.  A C minus average will help ensure a student's college readiness and career preparedness.  All students who complete the A.S.A.'s required curriculum will receive a Tecumseh High School diploma.  This is a diploma from a fully accredited academic institution.
     For more information on A.S.A., please contact Mr. Russ Ostrowski at 937-845-4475.
