School, Target of Mold Complaints, Abandoned

November 17, 2001

After years of teacher complaints that mold in their classrooms was making them sick, district officials decided this week to abandon Elizabeth Stewart Elementary School.

More testing is needed to determine what exactly is happening. Three separate environmental studies have failed to show dangerous levels of mold spores in the school.

The move was approved this week in an emergency vote by the district board to allow for additional testing of the 1960s-era hillside school.

As many as 21 portable units will be trucked onto a grass field and baseball diamond at the back of the campus, at a cost of about $1.5 million.
