The Durham District School Board is embarking on a three-year project to cool down some of its schools. The $17.6 million plan will see full air conditioning added to seven existing schools, and partial air conditioning added to the board’s 22 schools that currently have none at all. The schools that will have full air conditioning added include: Joseph Gould P.S. in Uxbridge, S.A. Cawker P.S. in Scugog, McCaskill's Mills P.S. in Cannington, and the rebuilt Beaverton Public school. Full air conditioning will also be installed in a new wing at Uxbridge Secondary School. A school board report says the design of some schools means “it is not physically possible” to air-condition the entire space.
