Rattan graduation moved after mold found inside gym

RATTAN, Okla. (KXII) -- Rattan Public Schools in Pushmataha County, Oklahoma is moving graduation out of town after mold was found under the high school gym bleachers.

Superintendent Shari Pillow says when the mold was discovered FEMA was called in to help.

Pillow says the bleachers have been removed and FEMA has been asked to help with repairs to the gym.

Rattan is moving its graduation ceremony later this week to the nearby Antlers gym.

A school bond that would have funded construction of a new gym fell just short of passing last month.

Pillow has said they plan to put another bond on the ballot later this year.
