TRENTON - Parents in Trenton are relieved that help for a high school that has been called "dangerous" is on the way.

The state has set aside $27 million to repair the school, but construction won't likely begin until next summer.

Trenton Central High School is home to 1,800 students, and some say the building is coming apart at the seams.

Authorities say the building has not been condemned, but is in fact going to be welcoming students this fall.

Working conditions at the school are almost unbearable. Masks and gloves must be used to enter the records room, and an alarm in the main office rings constantly because it is locked inside a corroded safe that can't be opened.

Trenton Central High School is one of three high schools in Trenton.
