8431.01 Policy - Asbestos Management

The Board of Education recognizes its responsibility to provide students, employees, and visitors with a safe and
healthful environment. Accordingly, the Board directs the Superintendent to ensure that the District satisfies its
obligations to deal with asbestos building materials in any building that is leased, owned, or otherwise used by the
District as a school building as required under State and Federal law including, but not limited to, the Asbestos
Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 ("AHERA"). To this end, the Board authorizes the Superintendent to
designate an individual responsible for ensuring that the District satisfies its responsibilities under AHERA. This
individual will, at a minimum develop and administer an Asbestos Management Plan as required by law. The
Plan will address all requirements under AHERA including, but not limited to, inspection, reinspection, periodic
surveillance, training and recordkeeping requirements.
The Superintendent will also ensure that at least once each school year, the District provides written notice to
parents, employees and employee organizations regarding the availability of the District’s Asbestos Management
Plan and any response actions taken or planned.
