Professional Development

Professional Development (PD) for school energy teams–typically consisting of school superintendents, facility managers and business managers–is a benefit of membership in Energy Association of Iowa Schools. Below are the PD opportunities planned so far for the 2020-2 school year:

• July 15, 2020 • School HVAC and COVID-19 Learning Webinar (Energy Members only) • 9 -10:30 a.m. 

Learn some HVAC pointers to support the “Health & Safety” and “Infrastructure” sections of your school’s Return to Learn Plan. While HVAC is not the primary way the COVID-19 virus is spread, it can help prevent the spread if schools incorporate best practices developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Epidemic Task Force. Will include real-life examples and time for Q&A. FREE for school districts who are Energy Members of Energy Association of Iowa Schools. Space is limited to 20 participants.

RESCHEDULED, date to be determined.  The Iowa School Energy Conference originally scheduled for April 22, 2020 in Ames at Iowa State University’s Reiman Gardens + Sukup End Zone Club tour at Jack Trice Stadium was cancelled. We are monitoring the situation and hope to reschedule this conference.

• February 2021 • Actual date to be determined. Legislative Update Learning Webinar (Energy Members only). Legislative Update on bills that would affect schools regarding energy and radon. Free for Energy Members of Energy Association of Iowa Schools.
