The #ElectrifyEverything in Your School Handbook has info for helping districts plan and implement all-electric upgrades (though there’s also more info about campaigns). It’s written for people on the decision-making and implementation side (e.g. school board members, facility managers, etc.). But it's also useful to read through if you’re on a campaign and want to responses for people who say your district can’t get this done.

This video series, “#ElectrifyEverything: A Very Short Course,” can be used to both teach and learn about some of the technical reasons for going all-electric.
