LOTTS CREEK, Ky. (WKYT) - A Franklin County Circuit Court Judge is holding an emergency hearing at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, regarding the conditions of Cordia at Lotts Creek Community School.
Earlier this month, Kentucky Education Commissioner Stephen Pruitt said the Cordia school building in Knott County "shall not be occupied by Knott County School District students after February 2, 2018."
Pruitt said new issues continue to be identified regarding the use of the Cordia school building. That includes a leak in the fire sprinkler system.
Pruitt said a health and safety inspection on Jan. 11 also revealed previous issues remain a concern. Those include animal feces in the building, structural cracks and a back-up electric generator not working.
The students at Cordia must be reassigned to other schools or facilities by the Knott County Board of Education and Superintendent Kim King.
