Biddeford school committee seeks more air tests after mold incident

The Associated Press

BIDDEFORD, Maine — The school committee is going to get a second opinion about the quality of the air in Biddeford High School.
The decision to seek a second opinion came after initial air tests found the air in the school met state standards.
Concerns about the Biddeford school’s air quality arose last month after two students had severe allergic reactions to mold.
Three classrooms were closed. They were reopened after a thorough cleaning, and subsequent tests showed low mold spore counts.
Superintendent Sarah-Jane Poli tells the Portland Press Herald that despite the favorable results of the first air test, officials want to have the school tested again.
