Schools without Air-Conditioning

  • City Schools is moving forward to install air-conditioning in all district-owned buildings, through either the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) or the 21st Century School Buildings Program. To ensure efficient and effective use of funds, plans call for installation of systems that provide both cooling and heat to address temperatures year round. Depending on the school, the system may be a building-wide central HVAC system or wall-mounted "vertical" room units. 

    Schools in the tables below have no air-conditioning. These schools will dismiss early on extremely hot days, according to these guidelines (except where noted). Additional schools with air-conditioning may dismiss early, if their system requires repair that cannot be completed within one day.

    Information in these tables is current as of January 16, 2019, but is subject to change, based on conditions in individual schools and progress with construction projects.
