District Asbestos Management Plan

  • In October 1986, Congress passed the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and required the establishment of procedures for public and private school districts to follow in response to asbestos-containing materials in schools. As a result, all Colorado school districts were required to inspect their schools for the presence of asbestos-containing materials and to develop and maintain asbestos management plans. This has been done as required.

    The AHERA statute also requires the asbestos management plans be available for review and that parent and employee organizations be notified of their availability. This web page provides the annual notification as required.

    The Asbestos Management Plan is available in each school and is located in the school office. It is available for review during normal school hours. The plan is also available at the Operation Services office and is available for review Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The asbestos management plan describes where asbestos-containing materials are located in the school and current recommendations for remediation (often by removal) or how the material is to be maintained. The plans also give a history of past remediation.

    If you need any further explanation of the management plans or any other subject regarding asbestos-containing materials in our schools, please contact Operation Services at (719) 579-2045.
