Taylor County Elementary School is a health hazard, according to an environmental study.

Rice said he inspected the building for mold, moisture, asbestos, lead-based paint, radon gas and fecal contaminants. And his inspection found all of those substances in the building.
"This building has a number of hazards that will affect health," Rice said.
