EDITOR'S NOTE: Updated Monday, Aug. 20 with information from the school district.
The will spend nearly $100,000 to rip out the almost-new dugouts at and replace them with properly permitted structures.
At a special Tuesday meeting, the district's board of trustees hired RSB Group Inc. to replace the school's with Division of the State Architect-approved dugouts for $92,400.
The current dugouts, which are just a few months old, were amid safety concerns.
According to Capo spokesman Marcus Walton, parents received approval to build the dugouts from an employee who is no longer with the district.
"However, the construction was not DSA approved," he said. "Because the parents received erroneous information, the district chose to correct the problem, ensuring that the dugouts that meet DSA standards."
Clark Hampton, CUSD deputy superintendent of business and support services, said the new dugouts should be finished before school starts.
