This portion of the website contains information regarding asbestos in the District. The District has a trained asbestos removal team that handles emergencies and small jobs; other asbestos work is contracted to certified asbestos abatement companies.
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and its regulations require public school districts to inspect their schools for asbestos-containing building materials, prepare management plans, and take action to prevent or reduce asbetos hazards. The Annual AHERA Notification to parents and staff (see the document below) describes the District's asbestos program, locations of AHERA Management Plans, and schools where asbestos work has been performed.
More information about asbestos can be found on the website of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Notifications related to asbestos removal projects are posted in this portion of the website.
