WESTPORT, CONN. -- Money for the removal of mold at the Coleytown Middle School in Westport were approved by the Board of Education Monday, according to a report by westport-news.com.

About half of the 30 targeted classrooms already had been inspected -- of those, eight were found to have mold issues – and the remaining classrooms will be examined during the Thanksgiving holiday, school officials told westport-news.com.

The board earmarked $93,822 for the partial clean-up, but the project may cost a total of $200,000 by the time it’s completed, westport-news.com said.

Schools Superintendent Colleen Palmer blamed the mold situation on problems with ventilator units and insulation, according to the westport-news.com report.

The school, 255 North Ave., houses grades 6-8.
