Last night while leaving the LCPS admin building at 1AM following our marathon meeting, I looked up at the windows on the Greenway-facing side, and I saw the light. The light that people tell me about when they say "no wonder this school system costs so much, look at the lights they leave on at night!"
I always wondered what people were talking about. Usually at night I leave from the front of the building and that has made the difference. The lights in the building are wired so that when you turn off a bank of lights a single flourescent tube in a single fixture remains lit, probably a security feature. There's one in the school board office, and looking up at the building last night I'd guess there's one about every 20 feet. This is visible from the rear of the building (facing the greenway) but not the front just because of the interior design, in which private offices along the front side of the building are on the window side, blocking the view of the lights from the outside. Private offices on the back side are interior offices, leaving cubicle farms along the back walls.
