The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires our school to notify the parents/guardians, faculty and staff of the presence and status of asbestos-containing materials in our school. The law further requires a management plan based upon the findings of the initial inspection.
We have completed the required six-month surveillance in December of 2015 and will complete the next surveillance in May of 2016. The results of the recently completed surveillance indicate that some floor tiles seemed to be "at-risk" and needed to be changed. As a result, a work order has been placed and changes will be made in the beginning of January, 2016.
In 2013, we had our triennial AHERA asbestos re-inspection of the building. A copy of the AHERA 2013 re-inspection report is available for your review in our school office during school hours or at the Department of Education's Office of School Facilities and Support Services, Environmental Services Unit. Please contact Gary Bignami, Program Specialist, at 377-8301 for additional information.
