Detroit schools report efforts to address maintenance issues

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -

Detroit's public school district says it's actively working to address building maintenance issues including those that have been cited in recent city inspections.

The Detroit Public Schools district says Monday it's creating a new page on its website where a weekly update on repairs related to violations found during inspections will be posted at the end of each week. The district says it's also including information on its internal work order system.

The district says repairs already have been made to water-damaged ceiling tiles, vandalized windows that were broken and peeling paint at some schools. State-appointed emergency manager Darnell Earley says in a statement the district is "working in partnership" with the city.

The Detroit teachers' union sued the district last week, calling for repairing buildings and removing Earley.
