Scranton, Lackawanna County-- The debate will continue over the Scranton School District's next move with mold-infested William Prescott Elementary at a board meeting scheduled for tonight.
The controversy over whether students are allowed to stay at Prescott, or are forced to move to a different school, continues to rage on between parents and board members in Scranton.
The board previously voted to move students out of Prescott by the end of this month.
But school leaders say recent air quality tests have shown that might not be necessary.
You'll recall this is the second Scranton elementary school to deal with a mold problem.
This case was compounded by what school leaders called a 'bookkeeping error' that led a report about Prescott's mold issue to be filed with information about Audubon Elementary-- the other school previously shut down by the board due to mold.
At Prescott, mold was detected in the cafeteria, along with some walls and ceiling tiles in bathroom areas.
But the most recent tests seem to show that the problem has largely been alleviated-- leaving the board to figure out what the next move should be.
Tonight's meeting is set for 6:30 in Prescott Elementary's multi-purpose room along Prescott Avenue in Scranton's Hill Section.
