JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Three years after its high school was destroyed by a tornado, the Joplin school district is preparing to move into a new high school.

Superintendent C.J. Huff said hundreds of volunteers will start moving equipment and supplies into the high school today. Classes are scheduled to begin next Monday.

The school district on Friday received its temporary certificate of occupancy for the school. Huff says inspectors have pinpointed some areas that still need to be addressed and the district is working to get the work finished quickly.

The temporary certificates allow people to be in parts of the building that have cleared inspection while work continues in other sections, such as the performing arts area.
