Bricks on the Beulah Middle School are chipping away, and the school board wants to know why.

Superintendent Rob Lech reported to the board that Chris Galitz, an engineering expert from Virginia, had determined that the problems with the bricks is "in no way a normal situation" and that more investigation is needed to determine the scope and cause of the problems. Galitz analyzed tests that had previously been done on the bricks and mortar.
