• Air Conditioning

    Air conditioning has been installed at ninety-two classrooms since April 2018.  This includes twenty-one classrooms at Barbara Webster, seventeen classrooms at Blanchard, seventeen classrooms at Glen City, twelve classrooms at Grace Thille, eleven classrooms at Santa Paula High School, and fourteen at Bedell.

    As a result, all classrooms at Barbara Webster, Bedell, Blanchard, Glen City, Grace Thille, and Renaissance are equipped with air conditioning!

    Electrical infrastructure upgrades were/are required at Bedell, SPHS, McKevett in advance of providing air conditioning at most locations:

    • Bedell - Following the completion of electrical upgrades in August 2020, air conditioning was installed in 2021 at Building A, Building B, Building C, Building E, and Building G.
    • SPHS - The electrical upgrade project was completed in October 2021.  Procurement of new condensers has been in progress for most of 2022, as 480V condensers are currently very long-lead items.
    • McKevett - The electrical upgrade construction contract was awarded August 12, 2021, and is scheduled to complete during the autumn of 2022.  New condensers for this campus have already been procured.  New HVAC equipment will be installed in two rooms over the 2022 Thanksgiving break and at three rooms over the 2022/23 Christmas break.
