New School of Arts and Science PTA president claims heat not functioning

The president of the PTA at one Bronx school says the heat has not been working all week.

The PTA president of the New School of Arts and Science contacted News 12 The Bronx about the heat problem. According to the school's principal, the heat in the building is sporadic. The principal said some classrooms are cold while others are a sauna.

A senior at the school says the cold temperatures inside the building are making it difficult to concentrate. He says he has had to wear his coat and gloves inside. Parents are also upset about the heating issue.

The Department of Education is looking into the situation.
