Evangeline Dennie, LEED AP co-authored the high-performance building guidelines and developed the 80+ page publication to be used as a system-wide wide guidance document for New Haven Schools in 2003.

Environmentally-friendly schools provide healthy environments for children with developing immune systems. Studies show that students yield higher test scores when they attend schools that employ natural daylight and other indoor environmental qualities. The City of New Haven, CT created a program to build and renovate all their K-12 schools to ensure they are healthy and environmentally-friendly. She researched and disseminated green guidelines content on technical topics including sustainable sites, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, building lighting, and materials. Developed “checklists” to track progress. She copy-edited text, designed editorial layout, and coordinated the print and electronic production.
