SHARE Emanuel wants all CPS classrooms to have air conditioning by 2019

The fan plan . . .

Sneed hears Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a cool new plan in the works.

It’s called air conditioning for every classroom in Chicago.

•To wit: Sneed is told Emanuel has now ordered the Chicago Public School system to add air conditioning to every classroom in the city that doesn’t have it . . . starting this summer

• Backshot: Last year, at the mayor’s direction, air conditioning units were ordered for all 70 buildings incorporating students from schools that had to be closed.

• Upshot: Now, at the mayor’s direction, the 206 school buildings that do not have full air conditioning will get it within the next five years. The upgrades will be paid for through the CPS capital budget, though it’s not clear how much they will cost.
