SHARE Map: Who’s got AC, who doesn’t

Oooh, it’s hot this week during the first days of school.

CPS said it would install air conditioning in all the receiving schools getting kids from closed schools.

We’re trying to track who has AC and who does not. This map (by Max Rust) shows some of the schools where high temperatures were reported (in red) as well as the CPS’ receiving schools (in black).

It’s based on CPS data of welcoming schools and kind folks who’ve passed along stories and photos and such of hot classrooms. It is hardly scientific.

If you know more about a hot school, please let me know.
