Required Annual AHERA Notification (September 14, 2022)
The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all schools to inspect building materials for the presence of asbestos. AHERA excludes schools if they are constructed after October 12, 1988 and have a statement signed by the architect or project engineer responsible for constructing the school stating that no asbestos containing materials were specified for the construction of the school. Our school has been provided such a statement and is therefore exempt from the requirement to conduct an asbestos inspection.
The EPA requires us to annually notify you that we are aware of the AHERA regulation and that we are in compliance. The management plan is available for your review anytime during normal school hours (8:30 am – 3:00 pm). The asbestos program manager, Rob Townley, is available to answer questions you may have about asbestos in our building (828-702-6581).
