HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WFFT) — The Indiana Department of Health conducted a follow-up evaluation of the indoor air quality at Huntington North High School on Tuesday.
Because of the poor results from the school’s initial air quality report from earlier this month Huntington County Community School Corporation Superintendent Chad Daugherty requested that the Indiana State Department of Health conduct a follow-up evaluation.
The second evaluation was completed on Oct. 22 and the results were made available on October 25.
