Two schools in the Tucson Unified School District were without air conditioning this morning because of power surges, according to district spokeswoman Stefanie Boe. 

Boe says crews were able to get the units started quickly. 

Another 12 schools had some of their A/C units down which affected some classrooms. 

"Portable cooling units have been moving from school to school to help out with climate control as our crews worked. We have also contracted out with additional local air conditioning companies to make repairs as fast as possible," Boe said in a news release. 

Boe also said the district's headquarters have been without A/C since Wednesday, however repairs to the school sites is thier number one priority. 

KGUN9 has not learned when the units will be fixed or which locations were impacted.
