Initial Test Results Released in Malibu Toxic School Probe — Sara Welch Reports

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District released preliminary results Friday for mold testing performed in response to concerns about possible toxic conditions at the school.

The report determined that the results are well within acceptable limits and in most cases are well below the levels measured outside, according to a news released from the district.

The preliminary report also stated there was no indication of a hidden source of mold and that the building can continue to be occupied and should not pose a health hazard from a mold standpoint, the release stated.

The tests were conducted on Sept. 20 and Oct. 4 on classrooms 2, 3, 10, and 14.

Officials said the final testing report would be posted on the district’s website.
