Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). AHERA requires that each school make available to parents and employees an asbestos management plan for their review if requested; the school is also required to provide parents and employees among others with an annual notification informing them, in part, of the availability of the asbestos management plan. The asbestos management plan for school buildings with asbestos-containing materials indicates location of the asbestos-containing materials. Schools with asbestos-containing materials are required to conduct twice yearly periodic surveillance to determine any change in the asbestos-containing materials.

The results of the recently completed surveillance conducted on December 15, 2017 indicate that there have been no changes in the condition of current asbestos-containing materials on campus.
