In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), during the 1988-1989 school year, the District inspected each school for building materials containing asbestos. The inspection findings and asbestos management plans have been on file in each school’s office since that time.
The EPA requires the District to perform inspections of asbestos materials every three years by accredited asbestos inspectors. In addition to these routine inspections, the District’s Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds also performs surveillances of all buildings every six months. Results of the reinspections may be viewed during school hours in each building office.
A substantial amount of asbestos has been removed from the buildings. Any remaining asbestos material is in good condition and the District will continue to monitor it as recommended by our asbestos consultant.
