Plogsted To Participate In OSFC Webcast

GBBN's Andrew Plogsted, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C, will join Mike Burson, facilities director for Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), to participate in a webcast hosted by the Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC) on November 16th at 10:00 am.

Plogsted and Burson will join Lisa Laney, OSFC's green schools director, as experts on the topic of taking advantage of your green school by using the school as a teaching tool.

"We will discuss how CPS was able to green their school district and then review how we alligned the science curriculum with the green features of the schools," said Plogsted, who serves as the sustainable design manager for CPS. The alignments are for all K-12 students.

The collaborative efforts don't stop there, however, according to Plogsted who says plans are on the horizon for additional green-related projects. "We're also working with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful on a pilot to put sustainability managers into the schools."
