According to the release, the ultimate goals of the program, which is in its third year, are higher test scores and lower absenteeism rates as a result of improved indoor air quality (IAQ) and other factors that make the learning experience more advantageous.
Along with saving water, the waterless urinal systems offer a cost savings, helping to reduce cleaning and maintenance charges, the release stated.
The waterless urinal systems will be installed in three different schools, the release noted.
USGBC President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rick Fedrizzi said: "There is no more important work we have before us. Our National Green Schools Campaign has sought to make this a priority item for school districts, government bodies and those who set the national agenda for our schools."
Part of the National Green Schools Campaign initiative is to show that green schools cost less money to operate and facilitate healthier, better performing students, the release added.
