Switching all the schools' air systems from heat to cool can take up to five days, Tinnin said. The district's team of 10 HVAC workers should be finished turning on the air conditioning by the middle of next week.

As of Friday afternoon, 20 locations had no air conditioning: ASTEC, Belle Isle Enterprise Middle School, Capitol Hill High School, Classen School of Advanced Studies, Cleveland Elementary School, Dove Science Academy and Elementary School, Independence Middle School, Jackson Middle School, Jefferson Middle School, Moon Academy, Northeast Academy, Northwest Classen High School, Parks Elementary School, Pathways Middle College High School, Quail Creek Elementary School, Rogers Middle School, SeeWorth Academy, Webster Middle School and part of the district's administration building.
