Goddard High School has been Cleared

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – A report says efforts to rid parts of Goddard High School of mold are a success. But the Tools for Schools report says the school district needs to test regularly to make sure the spores don’t return. The district hired Tools for Schools to examine the high school following a recommendation by the state Health Department in January. Parents and others in Roswell had been concerned about the school’s air quality and called for more testing on its heating and cooling system, ceiling and floor materials. The report says tests earlier this year found mold concentrations as high as 19,000 spores per cubic meter. Later the school ran more mold tests that found the levels were down to 80 spores per cubic meter.
