Demolition is underway in McDowell County as the old Iaeger Elementary School is coming down and a new building is being constructed.

The school board deemed the former Iaeger Elementary school property unsafe for students to return to after the parking lot started slipping into a river behind the school.

McDowell County Superintendent Nelson Spencer told 59News what still needs to be done.

"We'd like to see the demolition done of the old building within the next few weeks. I was down there this morning and they were removing part of the roof before the demolition actually began," Spencer said.

 
Funding for construction is from the Army Corps of Engineers and the School Building Authority.
