Starke Elementary to reopen after spring break
STARKE, Fla. -- Students displaced by mold at Starke Elementary school will be out of their home school at least until after spring break.
The school district says the school is set to reopen in March due to all the work that still needs to be done.
Architects believe they have pin-pointed the cause of the mold. It's being blamed on "failed or compromised equipment, automated controls, insufficient outside air ventilation and building pressure, and various breaches in the perimeter building thermal envelope."
New equipment has been ordered. It'll take at least 12 weeks to arrive.
Once installed, it will be inspected and the air quality will be tested to make sure it's safe for students.
The total cost of the project will be between $1.5 million and $2 million.
