Jennings Creek Elementary School

Warren County Board of Education | Bowling Green, Kentucky

Kentucky’s Next Net Zero Energy School



Kentucky’s Next Net Zero Energy School

Jennings Creek Elementary is the latest new elementary school facility in the Warren County School District. Opening in the Fall 2018, Jennings Creek will follow the energy reducing design strategies implemented throughout the district including a site-produced alternative renewable energy source (solar) to achieve net zero energy status.

Located within a campus shared with the existing Henry Moss Middle School, Jennings Creek Elementary will encourage 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” that 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 of the Media Center.

Green kitchen strategies eliminate deep fryers and tilting skillets to reduce energy, also supporting the district-wide initiative to provide healthier lunches for the students.

Jennings Creek Elementary is designed to operate at less than 20 EUI/SF/YR creating an average savings of over $165,000 a year in energy costs.
