Superintendent's Message

A Picture Tells a Thousand Words

If you look at the picture here, you will see plenty of people enjoying a sunny Sunday at Parras Middle School in the cool shade of our newly constructed solar panels. Growing up in the South Bay, I never could understand why my skin would burn—I was so close to the ocean and its breeze. As we all know, the sun’s fierce rays have been working overtime this year. The Redondo Beach Unified School District (RBUSD) could not have timed the construction of these solar shade structures any better. As a reminder, in November of 2012, the Redondo Beach voters approved Measure Q, which included funding for a district-wide 1.6 mega-watt solar energy project. We are nearing completion of this project. The solar system will offset 70 percent of energy used by the schools, reducing the district’s electricity bills and consumption from Edison, totaling approximately $15 million in savings over 25 years.

The solar project will create cleaner air for students and the community at-large by reducing 16,172 tons of carbon pollution over the next 25 years—which is equivalent to taking nearly 3,000 cars off the road or planting nearly 25,000 trees. Returning to the picture here, because RBUSD was forward-thinking in constructing these solar shade structures, our students, parents, and residents can enjoy many of our playfields while minimizing their sun exposure. I only wish my family and friends who watched many of my soccer, basketball, and baseball games had the strategically located shade structures when I was a kid. Their skin today would likely be in better shape. They also could breathe easier!

The students, staff, and parents of RBUSD cannot thank the residents enough for their support of Measure Q.
