Channel 9 first reported on the story about mold found in dozens of Charlotte Mecklenburg school buses on the first day of school.
In photos sent to Channel 9, what appears to be mold could be seen on seat belts and other parts of the buses.
On Monday night, the superintendent said that they had dealt with the problems and that those buses were safe to drive and safe for students.
But Channel 9 heard from sources who suggested that there was still mold in some of those buses.
On Thursday afternoon, the county’s environmental health department had inspectors at the bus yard on Wilkinson Boulevard.
CMS Associate Superintendent Guy Chamberlin told Channel 9 they are having drivers check for and clean up the mold.
“We did an inspection yesterday midday with the lead bus driver and did find about 40 buses that have mold growth,” Chamberlin said. “We have reiterated to our bus drivers that they need to check for mold growth first thing in the morning.”
