Electronic Plan Review (EPR)Beginning August 20, 2018, all plan review appointments must be done electronically. We conservatively estimate that moving to EPR will result in an annual reduction of over 113 metric tons of carbon dioxide due to energy and fossil fuel savings, save over 18 tons of paper, and reduce water usage by over 400,000 gallons.
Plan Review Appointment ProcessThe Plan Review Appointment process provides a school district’s project design team additional time to complete its submittal documents. This replaces the previous process where the design professional submitted the project for plan review and the project was placed in a queue until a plan reviewer could be assigned to the project.
7x7x7 Design Energy WaterThe purpose of 7x7x7: Design Energy Water is to encourage school districts throughout California to develop long-range master plans to reduce energy and water consumption on their campuses, while improving the quality of educational spaces. A central goal is to facilitate the achievement of Zero Net Energy (ZNE) for all existing K–14 facilities by 2030.
