The city of Detroit has released more inspection reports for Detroit Public Schools.

On Saturday, the city released health and safety investigation reports on the conditions of four schools as well as safety inspection reports for 14 more schools.

This comes just five days after the city released inspection reports for 11 schools, each with multiple violations.

The health inspection report at Dossin Elementary found a possible roof leak, standing water on a first floor hallway and interior water damage that may cause mold and affect the air quality.

At Osborn Schools, a health inspection on Jan. 21 found several broken windows, possible roof leaks and water damaged ceiling surfaces and more.

Detroit Public Schools spokesperson Michelle Zdrodowski released the following statement about the inspection report:

DPS appreciates the city of Detroit for working in partnership with Detroit Public Schools to create a good working and learning environment for the District’s students and staff. Since inspections began, the District has cooperated fully with the City and its inspectors.

The inspection reports have called out a variety of issues and the District is developing plans to address the corrections requested in each school. In a majority of cases, the corrective actions requested are those that can and/or are already being addressed. There are, however, a number of corrections that are more extensive and costly. Life and safety matters are, of course, our priority and we are working to address those issues immediately.

The District will also be taking the inspection reports that it receives from the City and meeting with the State's Department of Licensing and Regulations to develop a broader plan that assures that we are following health and safety guidelines and remediating all issues of concern within our available resources.

DPS will continue to explore all of its budgetary options to ensure that its buildings are safe for its students and their families, staff and the public.
