MADISONVILLE-Madisonville Middle School has received a clean bill of health from an air quality assessment.

The Monroe County Board of Education voted in November to have an air quality and mold assessment study completed at the middle school after a parent voiced concerns in the fall that the old school may have a mold problem.

Parent Keith Morgan spoke to the School Board in October about his daughter, an 11 year old who attends MMS. Morgan said his daughter developed allergy and asthma problems after beginning school there. Morgan eventually had to place his daughter on home bound until her health problems could be resolved.

The mold assessment was conducted by S&ME, Inc., out of Louisville, on Nov. 16 and 21.

"We gave them full access to the school for two days," Maintenance Supervisor Charles Underwood told the Board of Education on Thursday night.
