St. Pius X High School is proud to announce it is the first and only private school in Houston to participate in CenterPoint Energy’s Sustainable Schools Program (SSP), which promotes energy efficiency awareness school-wide.
The SSP is an interactive energy conservation program offered at no cost to St. Pius X by CenterPoint Energy to provide a positive impact on the environment.
The goal is to raise awareness of energy usage and change behavior in both students and staff in order to promote energy savings.
The program highlights the Dominican commitment to sustainability and addresses issues of social justice and care of the earth.
The services and materials that are part of the SSP include: educational materials and activities, teacher training and guidance, additional resources for lessons and activities, school energy audit kit for student audits, and training and on-going support for school staff.
The program gives SPX students a hands-on, eye-opening and user-friendly experience in a growing field of engineering as well as an engaging cooperative experience.
Implementation of the program begins immediately and continues into the 2013-2014 school year.
