Mold report issued for Dozier Elementary

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - An emergency meeting of the Montgomery School Board was held on Friday to talk about mold in an elementary school.

The problem is at Dozier Elementary and it appears to be solved but the system will be keeping a close eye on it in the future.

A certified mold inspector performed tests at Dozier Thursday. The board of education received the findings from environmental company Enviro Tech at it's emergency meeting.

The report indicates the school over-corrected the mold problem and made the air too dry at Dozier. The recommendation, perform more tests and monitor the problem for now.

Superintendent Barbara Thompson recommended to the board it follow the findings in the report and do tests twice a month.

Crews would sanitize the building during spring break. If any major problems arise before then, or after, the school system would take immediate action.

"I am happy the board listened to us", stated teacher Lisa Dunlap. Dunlap first reported the mold problem and became sick.

She said she's happy with the current plan to address the issues at the school. "It's about the children", added Dunlap.

Superintendent Thompson said she would release the findings from the test to teachers and parents.

Earlier this week the school board approved a nearly 2 million dollar plan to address the mold problem and make other necessary repairs at the school.

They will likely move forward with that plan but Friday's decision will give them more time to get additional bids for the work.
