FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A Flagstaff charter school is getting financial help to address lead-based paint and asbestos at its new building.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has awarded a more than $63,000 grant to the Pine Forest Education Association Inc. The group recently purchased a building that housed a Catholic church to expand curriculum for its students.

A property assessment found that lead-based paint and asbestos needed to be addressed ahead of any renovations.

The association plans to use the new space to expand music and athletic programs, and collaborate with other schools and community events.
