Watch energy.
 When I moved from a private to a public school I was surprised at how few
people turned off their lights.
I even go to the extent of making sure I have a full load when firing the
kiln. It really uses the juice. People never think about the kiln.
SInce then, we have a new energy policy. I realize some areas of the country
are all ready do so.
Also find out which classes actually use textbooks. I know that sound
politically awful...but if you aren't using them, why buy them. Texas came
out with a thing a few years back where you had to use spelling books...way
beneath what our kids were already doing....and they cut the funds to the
arts.
Just a couple of things....
