In 2011, Woodridge School District 68 decided to convert a portion of two school sites to permeable pavers. Frost heave of the concrete sidewalks near the schools, and the cost of maintaining the asphalt drove the District to look at alternatives. The success of those two pilot projects gave rise to the Green Campus Initiative.
Woodridge School District 68 is comprised of seven school campuses serving approximately 2,970 students. The Green Campus Initiatives is a multi-year program to convert the parking lots from asphalt to permeable pavers, create an outdoor classroom, and relieve stormwater management and flooding issues at all seven schools. Three schools have been completed to date with hopes to complete all seven schools in the years to come.
To date, Woodridge School District 68 has been awarded $640,000 in Grants, which have made the projects cheaper than if they had used asphalt.
