<ul><li> 1. Composting System<br />CICS Irving Park Campus<br />August 2011<br /></li></ul> <p> 2. ABOUT THE CICS-IP COMPOST SYSTEM<br /></p> <ul><li>CICS-IPs compost system is one of the largest, if not THE largest, compost systems in all of CPS. As envisioned, it will (eventually and during warm weather months) compost 80 to 100% of ALL cafeteria scraps. </li></ul> <p> 3. The system has the potential to be a model for all CPS! But we need to perfect the composting process and the monitoring process and then help CICS-IP put into place the curriculum for the system. Furthermore, we need to evaluate the educational component of the system in order to fulfill this potential. This is an exciting venture for CICS IP. And while the system becoming a model for CPS isnt guaranteed, we can use this goal to fuel our efforts to do the work that it will take to perfect the system! 4. The system was designed by Archeworks and installed in Spring 2011. During the 2011 2012, we are looking to perfect the system. There are a lot of issues to be worked out. 5. This document describes the composting process and the players and locations involved. The document is meant to be a tool to teach people teachers, staff, parents and students about the system. </p>
