Granville County School District hired an engineering firm to test air quality and inspect surfaces after a parent of a high school student complained that her daughter got sick from black mold at the school.

The inspection, the second since the beginning of the year, found no evidence of elevated mold levels at South Granville High School in Creedmoor, district spokesman Stan Winborne said Monday.

Winborne said the levels of mold found at the high school were lower than the average amounts detected in the outside air and that an independent lab confirmed the mold did not pose a health risk for students.

As a precaution, however, the school is being thoroughly cleaned, and more than 300 ceiling tiles were replaced, Winborne said.
