On October 22, 1986 President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act know as (AHERA). This act requires all school districts, public and private, K through 12, to inspect each of their school buildings for asbestos containing materials. Management plans are then to be developed which outline how the asbestos containing materials will be handled in each of the school buildings.
Copies of the Burlington Area School Districts inspection reports and management plan are available for review at each school building, as well as the School District Office.
The Local Education Agency (LEA) has assigned Gary Olsen as the Designated Person to see that all district responsibilities are properly carried out. You may contact this person to learn more about (AHERA) and any scheduled response actions within each school.
