JOPLIN, Mo. -- Some good news for Joplin school officials, after the city's new high school failed a building inspection last week.

Around 8:17 Friday night, school administrators received a temporary/conditional certificate of occupancy.

That means district officials can start moving into the high school. Tuesday afternoon, the school received word more work needed to be done before teachers could move in.

It was mostly small issues, but there were concerns about the elevators. Those issues have been fixed and moving can get underway.

Joplin's former high school was destroyed in the May, 2011 tornado.
