ANNUAL NOTICE: ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Each year I am required to post the following notice:

ANNUAL NOTICE

ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

 

An October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA, Public Law 99-519).  The act required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop regulations for addressing asbestos in public and private elementary and secondary schools.  On October 30, 1987, the EPA published the Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools Rule (40 CFR Part 763 Subpart E).  This rule stipulated, and our district has complied with, the following key requirements:

  • Identification of asbestos-containing materials in all school buildings.
  • Development and implementation of asbestos management plans for each school.
  • Regular surveillance and reinspections of the condition of asbestos in the buildings.
  • Designation and training of a person to oversee asbestos activities within the district and to ensure compliance with the regulations.

This memorandum is to advise you that asbestos management plans for the district schools were developed following the EPA ruling and subsequently approved by the State of Ohio, Department of Health.  These plans are regularly updated and are available for you to review. 

Should you have any questions regarding this program or would like to review an asbestos management plan, please contact the Board of Education offices during normal business hours.
