Subject: [CPEO-BIF] South Hill Elementary School, Ithaca, New York
ICSD has not yet released South Hill VOC test results
Official says school safe, levels below state standards

ITHACA - The Ithaca City School District has received results from 
re-tests for volatile organic compounds at South Hill Elementary school 
and has sent the test results to the state departments of Health and 
Environmental Conservation for evaluation and recommendation. It has not 
responded to separate requests by The Journal and a South Hill parent to 
release copies of the results.

Paul Mintz, assistant superintendent for business services for the 
Ithaca City School District, said on March 20 in response to a phone 
call from The Journal that the school district had received the results 
and that the results indicated no further action is required in the school.

When asked for a copy of the report, Mintz required a Freedom of 
Information Law request. The Journal submitted the FOIL request March 20.
