Rockwell City/ Lytton Schools

Annual Asbestos Notification

 

 

 

 

 

As a result of the federal law AHERA (Asbetos Hazard Emergency Response Act), all district facilities are required to develop and implement a plan for managing all building materials which contain asbestos. Included in the AHERA Act is the requirement to notify all parents,

guardians and staff members, as well as organizations representing them, of activities and events with the asbestos containing building materials annually.

 

In 1988, all buildings owned by the Rockwell City/ Lytton Schools were inspected by an

EPA accredited inspector, with building material samples analyzed by an independent laboratory.  Based upon the inspection, the Rockwell City/Lytton Schools prepared and the

State of Iowa approved a comprehensive management plan for administering the asbestos located within its buildings, safely and responsibly.

 

Once every three years, a certified inspector must re-inspect remaining materials. In addition,

the rule requires a periodic walk –through (called surveillance) in each area containing asbestos every six months.

 

The Rockwell City/ Lytton Schools has a management plan located in the Central Office of the Rockwell City/ Lytton Middle School building. This plan describes all areas that contain asbestos

in the districts buildings. This plan is available upon request to review those areas. The goal of the Rockwell City/ Lytton Schools is be in full compliance with AHERA. It is district policy

to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff members. This shall be accomplished by strict enforcement of the policies regarding asbestos by the asbestos manager and school officials.
