COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Members of the Columbus Municipal School District toured Union Academy on Thursday to assess what the building's needs are for repairs.
The district plans to relocate students from Hunt Intermediate School and Columbus Success Academy to Union Academy since the tornado in late February severely damaged the building.
The students from Hunt Intermediate School and Columbus Success Academy are temporarily at Columbus High School.
School Board President Jason Spears said they are looking at repairing the flooring, the outside of the building and evaluating the water, air conditioning, and heat.
He said they hope to have Union Academy fully operational by the next school year.
