Advisory Committee for Environmental Sustainability (ACES)
The Advisory Committee for Environmental Sustainability advises and informs the School Board and Superintendent about measures to help Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) develop and reach sustainability goals and foster an integrated series of tools and knowledge for the growth of environmental awareness. A significant part of ACES mission will be to guide and coordinate the implementation of the County’s Climate Action Plan as it relates to schools. Implementation will involve goals related to the five sectors of the Climate Action Plan: Transportation and Land Use; Buildings; Renewable Energy Sourcing; Sustainable Materials Management; and Landscape, Natural Resources, and Agriculture. In addition, annually the School Board may identify issues of interest for ACES to investigate and make recommendations.
