The Twin Rivers School District has had the solution for their temperature issues for a couple of years, the problem is they haven’t had the money to do anything about it.
Students at Grant High School are either too old in the winter or too hot in the summer because the school does not have working heat or air conditioning, but that will change come next school year.
At a press conference today at Grant High, school district officials announced a more than $7 million plan to install HVAC units by the start of the 2014-2015 school year.
“We are using one time funds for this,” said Twin Rivers Superintendent Dr. Steven Martinez.
Both Grant and Harmon Johnson Elementary will be receiving the units, which will be installed in classrooms after the current school year has ended.
