Asbestos Notification

DUDLEY-CHARLTON REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT

AHERA NOTIFICATION

Dear Parents, Students, Legal Guardians, and Employees:

In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), which requires schools to be inspected to identify any asbestos containing building materials. Please find listed below the District schools and the results of their inspections. Every three years, schools containing asbestos materials must be re-inspected to determine if any known or suspected asbestos-containing buildings materials (ACBM) have changed and recommendations are made on the managing or abatement of the ACBM.

The law further requires an asbestos management plan to be developed and implemented to monitor any known or inspected ACBM. The plan has several ongoing requirements: Publish a notification on management plan availability and the status of asbestos activities; educate and train its employees about asbestos and how to deal with it; notify short-term or temporary workers on the locations of the asbestos containing building materials; post warning labels in routine maintenance areas where asbestos was previously identified or assumed; follow set plans and procedures designed to minimize the disturbance of asbestos containing building materials; and survey the condition of these materials every six months to assure that they remain in good condition.

It is the intention of the Dudley-Charlton Regional School District to comply with all federal and state regulations controlling asbestos and to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure students and employees a health and safe environment in which to learn and work. You are welcome to review a copy of the asbestos management plan in the school administrative office during regular business hours. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the number listed below.
