School Partners

Learning Gate Community School is partners with Dr. Daniel Yeh of the University of South Florida College of Engineering on a USGBC-sponsored project to study integrated building water management (IBWM).

For the project, detailed water usage data from the green classrooms will be collected and analyzed with the assistance of LG students and staff and used to facilitate the development of the IBWM model.

"Lowe’s is committed to improving the schools that are guiding tomorrow’s employees, homeowners and community leaders,” said Larry D. Stone, chairman of Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation.

“Learning Gate Community School’s commitment to sustainability in an educational setting is also preparing its students to be good environmental stewards, and we’re proud to support that initiative."
