School district to remediate Evans Elementary buildings after mold complaints

OVIEDO, Fla. — Seminole County Public Schools says it plans to remediate buildings that they removed students and teachers from, following complaints from parents about possible mold and air quality issues.

The school district said they hope the buildings at Evans Elementary School will be ready when students return from Thanksgiving break.


The district took the students out of the classrooms in September after complaints and moved all the children into the main building, which created issues with class sizes, with some rooms having between 35 and 46 students.

Last month, an assessment was done on the classrooms in question, and on Thursday those findings were presented to the school board.
