Restoring a Mural

Help! One of our elementary schools has a large mural that they want to
repaint. They have a series of questions and I said that I would
forward them. The original mural was painted using water-based paint on
stucco wallboard. It has been touched up in the past, and has suffered
from students chipping away at the wall board. They have a volunteer
who is willing to repaint the whole thing, but are wondering if a) They
should seal the old work before started the restoration job, b) If they
should sand the whole thing lightly so the surface will be even instead
of pitted and chipped, or c) something no one has thought of yet? They
will be grateful for any advice and help. I will be happy to harvest
your replys and deliver them to Lower Lake Elementary in Lower Lake, CA.
Thank you for all the great ideas.
