ANNUAL ASBESTOS NOTIFICATION


April 17, 2024

In 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).  This law required all K-12 schools to be inspected for asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM).

These inspections were completed and the plan for all ACBM management was filed with the State of Oregon’s Department of Education on October 11, 1988.  A copy of this management plan for each school is on file in the main office of each respective school and in the Archive Room at the District’s Maintenance Services Department.

Based on this inventory and our construction management records since the inventory was completed, the following schools are considered to be asbestos-free.  All other schools contain some asbestos-containing building materials.

During the 2023 calendar year, PBS Engineering and Environmental, a private consulting firm, in accordance with Federal Regulations under AHERA, re-inspected all schools twice (June and December).  The results of these inspections are filed in each school’s management plan.

All asbestos-containing building material that was identified in the management plan will continue to be monitored.  The District will conduct a re-inspection of all inventoried asbestos containing material this summer and will follow with a periodic surveillance every six months.  These activities are planned as part of the original management plan.  The District’s maintenance and custodial personnel have received special training to qualify them to conduct their routine activities around ACBM, to handle accidental releases of asbestos fibers should these materials become damaged or disturbed, and to monitor the conditions of these materials.

Users of District buildings, both children and adults, have not and will not be exposed to any level of free and harmful asbestos.  Covering, enclosing (boxing in), or encapsulation (painting, wrapping, or otherwise sealing) ACBM has provided the necessary protection from any possible hazards.

During the 2023 calendar year, the District has abated ACBM at the following locations:

Elementary Schools
