Brick Schools have spent more than a half million dollars on mold remediation between Drum Point Elementary, Brick High School and the Educational Enrichment Center, the district reported.
The school district’s insurance covers $25,000 of the $575,000 cost to test and remove mold, said Brick Township Schools Business Administrator James Edwards in a special board meeting Nov. 13.
Edwards explained the district’s insurance coverage was for $25,000, and that amounts above that are the district’s responsibility, leaving the schools with a $525,000 cost for the three schools’ mold remediation.
The most recent mold remediation was for Drum Point Elementary School, for $200,000. The special board meeting was called to update residents on that project specifically, which concluded mold remediation Nov. 10, according to the district.
Additionally, $175,000 worth of mold remediation was completed at Brick High School, and $200,000 at the Educational Enrichment Center, both on Chambers Bridge Road, Edwards said.
