Community Officials Concerned With School Cleanliness

During a recent administration meeting, members of the Maury County Commission expressed concerns about the condition and cleanliness of the county’s public schools. The school superintendent of facilities was brought in to outline the school system’s $18-million bond spent on improvements to the current district’s facilities and new building projects in 2016.

According to the Columbia Daily Harald, mold, cracks and water damage is visible in some of the Tennessee schools, making them unfit for students.
