ANNUAL ASBESTOS NOTIFICATION
TO STUDENTS, PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND EMPLOYEES
On October 22, 1986, the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) became law. This law requires all local education agencies to identify asbestos containing materials (ACM) in their school buildings and take appropriate actions to control the release of asbestos fibers into the environment. In order to comply with this law, all Scottsboro City Schools have been inspected and management plans have been developed. The management plan is a document required by law, which describes in detail the inspection findings and various approved methods of dealing with ACM. The management plan, inspection results, removal records are on file at the Central Office and at each school’s main office. You may review these reports during regular office hours. Currently, Nelson Elementary, Collins Intermediate, and Scottsboro Junior High are the only schools in this system that have some ACM and are therefore required to maintain an Asbestos Management Plan. ACM are surveyed every 6 months and re-inspected every 3 years. The next scheduled re-inspection is scheduled for Spring/Summer of 2017. This annual notification is another component of AHERA required activities.
If you have questions concerning the management plans, you may contact the Director of Operations or the Maintenance supervisor at (256) 218-2100.
