Energy Management

GENERAL OVERVIEW DeSoto ISD Energy Management prides itself on the upkeep and maintenance of district schools and support facilities. DeSoto ISD aims to conserve money and resources through the environmentally-focused efforts of the district’s professional, custodial and maintenance crews.

The district hosts student extra-curricular activities that take place outside of the normal school day across district spaces where we welcome families and community for a range of events.

By district policy, groups may reserve certain DeSoto ISD facilities for use during non-school hours. As a district, we want to ensure that we are using and scheduling these facilities in a way that is not only energy conservative but financially responsible. DeSoto ISD has identified several “joint use” facilities such as gyms, fields, and cafeterias that are shared with the City of DeSoto for the use of parks and recreational programs and meeting locations for non-profit and civic organizations.

Due to maintenance costs and/or special circumstances, we have a number of facilities that are not available for public use but are happy to work with community groups to schedule use of our available facilities to the extent and possibility reasonable based on the school’s prioritized use and scheduling of these spaces.

It is important to note the use of DeSoto ISD facilities may incur a rental fee dependent on the nature of the event and/or the type of organization requesting use of a district space per DeSoto ISD policy.
