OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — The first day of school in the state’s largest district included problems with air conditioning systems in hundreds of classrooms.

The Oklahoma City Public School District tells NewsChannel 4 that it is working on repairing the A/C in roughly 200 of its 4,000 rooms.

The problems affected several schools, including Taft Middle, F.D. Moon Elementary, Linwood Elementary and Jackson Middle School.
