Audrey Matott is reporting in The Daily Mail some parents of students at Cairo-Durham Elementary School have expressed concern about asbestos warnings posted in school's gymnasium. Acting Cairo-Durham Superintendent Anthony Taibi said the signs were mandatory, and denied they were an indication of a problem. He addressed the issue at a Board of Education meeting, Tues., Sept. 2. Taibi said the district has conducted various air quality assessments during the building project, and the tests have come back with below measurable findings each time. He said the district has taken every possible precaution to make sure students, faculty and staff are as safe as they can possibly be during the construction project. In other news, during the same board meeting, Cairo-Durham High School Acting Principal Matthew Ward reported student performance on state assessments was mixed. Although some scores showed areas in need of improvement, other outcomes indicated student progress has been made. Read both stories in The Daily Mail.
