Air-conditioning on (parents’) agenda at District 97 board meeting tomorrow

This from the latest of a series of concerned, even indignant emails about non-air-conditioned Oak Park classrooms:

Dear Mr. Spatz [District 97 board president],

Since you have been included on this email chain, I trust that you will ensure that the Board allocates time at tomorrow night’s meeting for parents and other concerned parties to be heard on the issue of heat emergencies and the district’s plan to address same (including but not limited to both short and long-term solutions like air conditioning).

As noted in [parent] Laura Garcia’s email, that issue does not appear on the Board’s published agenda but clearly it is an issue of great and immediate importance to your constituent families, seeing as we are in the midst of yet another heat emergency this week, with temperatures projected to reach and perhaps exceed 95 degrees tomorrow.

Thank you.

Tracey Truesdale

The meeting is set for 7 pm at district headquarters, 970 Madison St.

Other districts have this problem, it should be noted. Some solve it by sending kids home.
