Public Health Dept. Inspects CCHS Campus
November 10, 2022
The Los Angeles Department of Public Health conducted an inspection of the Culver City High School campus and cafeteria on October 27 and a follow-up examination on November 3.
While most of the campus and its restroom facilities were found to "meet standards," Culver City School District officials said there were a few items requiring corrective action that staff has already begun to address.
The inspection was prompted by a complaint that had been filed with the Department of Public Health, stating that the high school had "overflowing and smelly trash, cockroaches and rats in classrooms, maggots in student lockers, restrooms are broken, leaking and never cleaned. Ceiling tiles are falling on kids."
District officials said the Public Health inspection found no evidence of rodent or cockroach infestation, no maggots in lockers, no leaks in the bathrooms. The inspection covered both the boys' and girls' locker rooms, student lockers, refuse storage area, dance and music classroom facilities, gym and 'common student areas of the school," according to CCUD.
The health inspectors noticed missing ceiling tiles in both the student and faculty restrooms adjacent to the library and a single cockroach in the girls' locker room, according to the School District.
The Health Department will conduct another follow-up inspection on December 1
