    CONCORD — The Vermont town of Concord has scheduled a vote next month on a $6.3 million school construction bond to deal with a mold problem.

    The Concord School has had to strip showers and toilets in the boys’ and girls’ locker rooms at the school’s Dickson Gymnasium because of mold. The lack of facilities means the school is deficient, according to the Department of Education requirements.

    If voters approve the bond request on Nov. 12, long-term financing would be used to consolidate Concord’s two school buildings, the gym, and the main academic building into one.

    The Caledonian-Record reports (http://bit.ly/H1mTy0) plans call for the gym to be demolished. A new cafeteria and some classrooms would be built.
