Air Conditioning Our SchoolsOur Board of Education and administration believe air conditioning our schools is necessary in order to provide an appropriate learning environment for our students and working environment for our staff. It remains a top priority for us and we continue to support a spring voter referendum on this important issue. In October our Board sent this letter to the Town Council and Board of Finance to clearly state our position on issues related to air conditioning. More information on air conditioning our schools can be found on the BOE Reports page.
