"Some kids are feeling light headed and they are having to hydrate the living daylights out of them," Obertone said.
The Norcross High School building was built with budgeted and taxed funds back 2001. A school district spokeswoman said that it was custom back then to build schools without air in gyms or in the activity centers for middle and elementary schools.
"It's in the design stage and it should be installed next year," spokeswoman Sloan Roach said.
Obertone though, doesn't trust the work will get done next year. He said he understands the excitement with the new massive video board, but wonders why the community hasn't stepped in to help with the hot gym.
"One would think in 14 years the second or largest school in Gwinnett (one of the state's largest counties) could get air conditioning," Obertone said.
School administrators confirmed Norcross High is one of only two high schools in the district without air conditioning in its gymnasium. Both schools are scheduled to have coolers added in 2016.
