City Councilwoman Pauline Cutter was recently hired by the San Leandro Unified School District as Energy Education Specialist to implement and manage a new energy conservation program.
The position is part-time and savings from the program are guaranteed to pay for ther salary, said school Superintendent Cindy Cathey.
“As a classroom teacher for over 20 years, I look forward to working with staff to find ways that will change the way the District uses energy,” Cutter said.

She is currently on the San Leandro City Council.
Recently, the District sought to reduce what it spends on utilities by entering into a partnership with Energy Education, an organization which has helped school districts nationwide reduce energy consumption.
The program is guaranteed by Energy Education to save the District money and is expected to generate net savings of $3.6M over the next ten years, the District says.
