Asbestos Update

In compliance with the 1989 US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), we have routinely performed six month periodic surveillance of each of our school buildings for asbestos-containing building materials. The records and the asbestos management plans are on file in each school and the administrative office.

Villa Environmental Consultants, Inc., which is licensed by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth and the EPA, has been performing the three year inspections of all asbestos containing building materials as per the AHERA law. The last three year inspection was in June 2007.

There were no significant findings during the most recent periodic surveillance and the three year re-inspection for the district. The asbestos materials in this district are currently in good condition and we will continue to manage them in place, as recommended by our accredited asbestos management planner. We are not planning asbestos removal during this fiscal year.

The results of the re-inspection are on file in the management plan in the school administrative offices. The public is welcome to view these during normal school hours (M-F 8:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.).
