The Santa Barbara Unified School District received more than a million dollars to upgrade ventilation, air conditioning, and heating systems.

State grant will allow upgrades to ventilation, heating and cooling systems

Kids, and staff members could have some better learning conditions at some South Coast schools, thanks to a major state grant.

The Santa Barbara Unified School District received more than $1.5 million from the California Energy Commission to upgrade ventilation, air conditioning, and heating systems at more than a dozen schools.

The money will be used to repair existing systems, and develop plans for replacing others.
