OFFICIAL NOTICE In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). That law required inspection of all schools, kindergarten through twelfth grade, to identify any asbestos-containing building materials. The law further required the development of a Management Plan, based upon the findings of the inspection, which outlines our intent in controlling the potential for exposure to asbestos fiber in our schools. The inspection in our schools was completed, and a Management Plan was compiled in 1989 as required, and some asbestos-containing materials were identified in our buildings. The materials are distributed in various locations and include floor tile, pipe insulation and mechanical areas not readily accessible to building occupants or students. The Management Plan outlines in detail the methods used to maintain the materials in a safe manner. It also includes records of six month periodic surveillance inspections, three year re-inspections and records of all abatement projects that have been completed. The six month periodic surveillance inspections are conducted by district personnel in April and October of each year. The three year reinspection is conducted by a certified inspector. The next three year reinspection will take place in April 2024. The St. Helens High School had sections that were abated during the 2021-2022 school year. We do not anticipate any abatement projects for the 2022-2023 school year. A copy of the Management Plan is on file for your review at the school district maintenance office at 301 Saint Helens Street. Copies of individual building inspection reports are on file in each school’s administrative office. Publish Sept 23, 2022 CCS256637
