The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986 is a federal law enacted in 1987 which requires all school districts to reinspect facilities for building materials containing asbestos. Our buildings have been inspected, and response actions are planned to ensure a continued safe environment for our students and employees. Actions include training of maintenance staff to prevent disturbance of asbestos and periodic reinspection and surveillance activities by trained personnel. Details of such activities are described in the District's AHERA Management Plan, which is available for review in the main office at each school building, as well as the facilities administrator's office.
