From Mark Robinson’s piece in the Times-Dispatch on last night’s School Board meeting:

Students and teachers will return to George Mason Elementary School for the upcoming school year after the Richmond School Board opted Monday night for short-term fixes to what is widely considered the worst building in the district.

The board approved a recommendation from interim Superintendent Thomas Kranz’s administration to complete repairs and clean up the building before students return to the Church Hill school on Sept. 5. In addition to the repairs, the division will conduct monthly air quality tests to “ensure safety,” Kranz said.
