AHERA Notice

On October 30, 1987, the Federal Government enacted legislation for application through the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), entitled through the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).  The law requires all elementary and secondary schools, both public and private, to conduct inspections to determine the location of asbestos containing materials and subsequently, to develop a management plan to ensure proper maintenance of these materials.  This legislation requires, moreover, that students’ parents and teachers be apprised of the results of such inspections.  This notice is provided to comply with that requirement.

In consultation with a state certified contractor, Bi-Cultural Day School has submitted the required asbestos survey report and management plan to the State Department of Public Health.  As required the management plan will be available for public inspection during normal school hours in the main office.
