September 18, 2012

Tuesday's Baltimore County Board of Education meeting, along with all other afternoon and evening BCPS activities, has been postponed due to inclement weather.

But when the board does meet on Wednesday, Sept. 19, their focus will be on keeping schools cool.

On the board's agenda is a status report on the air conditioning in county public schools. The report, which is previewed on the school board's website — — looks at the county's plan for installing air conditioning in new and older schools, and includes information on budgets and scheduling.

Part of the presentation indicates that the county currently has 94 schools that have air conditioning and 67 that do not.

The report suggests that by the 2015-16 school year, 116 schools will have air conditioning, and the number of facilities that don't will be down to 46.

The board will meet in its open work session at approximately 6:30 p.m. Other items on the agenda include a report on the school system's strategic plan, and also administrative appointments.

The meeting will be held in the ESS Building, Room 114, on the Greenwood Campus, 6901 Charles St., Towson. Those who wish to speak before the board during the public comment period must sign up between 5 and 6:25 p.m. outside of the board meeting room.
