Asbestos Memorandum





 TO:       Parents, Teachers and Staff



 FROM:  Wayne E. Leis

               Assistant Superintendent

RE:       Annual Notification of Availability of

             Management Plan and Update of Activities

DATE:   December 1, 2007

On October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed into law the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA, Public Law 99-519).  The law required the EPA to develop regulations which provide a comprehensive framework for addressing asbestos problems in public and private elementary and secondary schools to inspect for friable and non-friable asbestos in school buildings, develop management plans that address asbestos hazards in school buildings, and implement response actions in a timely fashion.

One of the requirements of this law is to annually notify parents, teachers, and staff of the availability and location of the school building’s Management Plan. The Management Plan for your school building is located in the Principal’s Office.  Management Plans for all school buildings in the district are located in the designated person/program manager’s office.  Also, please be advised that information regarding any inspections/re-inspections, response actions, and post-response action activities are also included in the Management Plan and is available for your review.

Mr. Wayne Leis is the designated person/program manager for our school district.  Accordingly, should you have any questions regarding this Management Plan, or wish to see this plan, please contact Mr. Leis at 328-5378.  You may view the plan during normal business hours (7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday) by appointment.
