Kentucky’s Next Net Zero Energy School

Jennings Creek Elementary follows the energy reducing design strategies implemented throughout the district including a site-produced alternative renewable energy source (solar) to achieve zero energy status.

Located within a campus shared with the existing Henry Moss Middle School, Jennings Creek Elementary encourages Integrated Learning, between the two facilities and promote a P-8 campus. While the buildings are separate, an outdoor pathway and supervised corridor, enable staff and students to utilize the Cafetorium with a stage, Group Study Areas, and the Monumental Collaboration Stair. During night time productions, the classroom wings are able to be secured while allowing use of the Collaboration Areas.
Housed within the Media Center are “Maker Spaces” to encourage student group meetings and promote collaborative thinking. At the Center of the Media Center is a Media Hub, allowing students to utilize computer work stations within the supervised environment.

Each classroom features flexible seating options, such as wobble chairs, balls, and couches to allow students to burn off energy in a way that’s not disruptive yet promote classroom learning, with the easily moveable furniture.

Green kitchen strategies eliminate deep fryers and tilting skillets to reduce energy, and in support of the district-wide initiative to provide healthier meals.

Jennings Creek Elementary is designed to operate at less than 17.5 EUI/SF/YR creating an average savings of over $195,000 a year in energy costs.

Amazing project for the future of the Russell County Students.Progress continues on the Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center! The building (under construction by Branscum Construction Company, Inc) is beginning to resemble the design rendering by Sherman Carter Barnhart Architects. The center is being constructed on the grounds of Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region. The center is expected to serve 2,215 high school students and 620 adults in all five primary Kentucky Workforce Investment Board sectors — advanced manufacturing, healthcare, technology, construction trades, and transportation.
