Under AHERA (Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act), all primary and secondary schools are required to develop and implement a plan for managing all building materials which contain asbestos. Included in the AHERA is the requirement to annually notify all workers and building occupants (or their guardians) of asbestos-related activities.

    Beginning in 1988, all buildings owned, leased, or “under the control of” the School District were inspected by EPA accredited inspectors, with building material samples analyzed by an independent laboratory. Based on the inspection, the School District prepared and the state approved a comprehensive management plan for managing the asbestos.

    Where the asbestos-containing materials are found, the District has in place an Operations and Maintenance program.  This ensures that all asbestos materials are kept in good condition.

    Our goal at the District is to be in full compliance with asbestos regulations.

    A copy of the Asbestos Management Plan is available for review by contacting the District office.

    Questions related to this plan or any other asbestos concerns should be directed to the District’s designated person,
