State law encourages districts to address air quality issues in schools.
Oklahoma Statutes 70-5-131.2. Energy conservation contracts.
A. As used in this section, “energy conservation measures” means one or more of the following items:
- Insulation of the building structure or systems within the building;
- Storm windows or doors, caulking or weather-stripping, multiglazed windows or doors, heat-absorbing or heat-reflective, glazed, and coated window or door systems, additional glazing, reductions in glass area, or other window and door system modifications that reduce energy consumption;
- Automatic or computerized energy control systems;
- Heating, ventilating or air conditioning system modifications or replacements;
- Replacement or modification of lighting fixtures to increase the energy efficiency of the lighting system, but not for the sole purpose of increasing the overall illumination of a facility, unless an increase in illumination is necessary to conform to the applicable state or local building codes for the lighting system after the proposed modifications are made;
- Indoor air quality improvements;
- Energy recovery systems;
- Energy awareness education programs; and
- Water-metering devices that increase efficiency or accuracy of water measurement and reduce energy consumption. B. The board of education of any school district in compliance with the provisions of this section, may enter into an energy conservation contract for the purpose of implementing energy conservation measures designed to reduce the energy consumption of school facilities.
