Chicago Public Schools on Wednesday announced 54 schools will be getting air conditioning this summer as part of a $100 million plan to cool schools within the next five years.

The schools are spread throughout the city and CPS says schools with the “highest need” are going first. That means schools with no air or partial air will likely get air conditioning installed this summer in time for the 2014-2015 school year.

Among the 54 schools is Ravenswood Elementary School, one of the oldest school buildings in Chicago where parents raised money to put window units in just two preschool classrooms.

The first phase will cost about $20 million and is estimated to cost $20 million each year of the plan.

Installation will begin this summer and CPS will work around student summer schedules to not disrupt instruction time.

“Air conditioning is one of the classroom resources CPS is investing in their capital budget to provide positive, comfortable learning environments for every student to be 100 percent college-ready and 100 percent college-bound,” Mayor Emanuel said in a statement. “This investment will also mean that the 42,000 CPS students who attend summer programs will have a safe, cool place to be during those months when they are either in summer school or a summer program.”

In all, 206 CPS schools will get air within five years.

Of CPS ’ 530 school buildings, 324 are fully air conditioned, 44 have no air conditioning and 162 are partially air conditioned, according to the mayor’s office.

Details on how CPS will fund the plan are still unclear, but a 2015 capital plan is expected to be announced on Friday and may answer some questions. CPS has said the plan includes funding for repairs, upgrades and school improvements.
