  • Why have I seen the AC running at schools outside of normal hours?

    Ensuring clean and healthy indoor air quality for our staff and students is a major goal of Oak Park USD. Most of our classrooms are not being used daily, and in order to keep the indoor air clean, it is necessary to run the AC and ventilation periodically. You may see AC units running for a one-hour “purge” outside of normal working hours. According to the State's Indoor Air Quality Guidelines, "Purging-type ventilation procedures should be used for at least one to two hours to flush the building of accumulated contaminants after a period of vacancy, e.g., weekends, evenings, and holidays." Running the AC units outside of normal hours minimizes energy consumption and enables the room to be suitable for use the following day should a teacher need to access the room to conduct distance learning instruction. Additionally, AC units above campus kitchens that support walk-in refrigerators and freezers must run constantly for safety reasons.

    Welcome to Oak Park! I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our amazing schools. I am often asked, “Why are the Oak Park Schools so special?” I think the answer is quite simple, the dedicated teachers, support staff, caring counselors and administrators, the Board of Education who sets the positive direction for the District and sustains the vision, the parents and community that support the schools, the students who bring their diverse interests and needs, all working together with a sense of common purpose. In Oak Park, our students are not data points, they are unique individuals, and valued by all. We appreciate that parents place their children in our trust knowing they will all have meaningful learning experiences each day that will lead to their development as capable, responsible, and caring adults.
