MCPS recognized as an Energy Star district

School principals are their Energy Star certificates

The Kentucky School Boards Association recognized MCPS as an Energy Star District at the December 8, 2016, board of education meeting. The district is one of only sixteen districts recognized this year with Lebanon Middle scoring a perfect 100 - one of only nine Kentucky schools to receive a perfect score. The district's efforts to conserve energy saved the district nearly $600,000 in energy usage costs last year.
