BRIDGEPORT — Students at Columbus School will get to spend another year in the so-called “swing space” school in the south end thanks to window caulk.

School building officials who have been working for two years to update and renovate the permanent school on George Street recently discovered the presence of polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, an organic compound and probable carcinogen, in the caulk that insulates the windows.
