The Board of Education has faced tough scrutiny this year for an ongoing mold issue. Parents said the school board and superintendent failed to tell them about the problem at Pointers Run Elementary and Glenwood Middle School.

More concern was raised after the board renewed the contract of Superintendent Dr. Renee Foose in February.

The school district disagreed with most of the findings in that report.
