Department of Education spokesperson Ron Gough says hard copies of teacher certification records did get wet. State Archives employees now have those records and will work on drying and restoring them.

60 to 80 Department of Education employees are working from home today becasue of water damage to their offices. A Department of Education spokesperson says saturated ceiling tiles fell onto office furniture, computers and carpets in the north side of the Townsend Building in Dover, sometime over the weekend.

As of Monday afternoon nearly 200, 24-inch ceiling tiles have been removed. Ten desktop computers, two laptops, eleven monitors and five printers have been removed from the offices and are being evaluated for damage.

The damage was to the first and second floors, where the offices of Assessment and Accountability, Licensure and Certification and Curriculum and Instructional Improvement are located in the damaged offices. Employees will continue to work from home on Tuesday.

The source of the water has not been identified yet.
