Annual Asbestos Notification

In compliance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1988 (AHERA), a copy of CKSD’s Asbestos Management Plan is available in the main office of each school. A master copy is available in the Grounds, Maintenance, and Custodial Office.

During the 2017-18 school year, asbestos abatement was conducted at the old Transportation facility in preparation for demolition before the construction of the new CK campus could begin.

Anticipated projects for the 2018-19 school year include the required six-month periodic surveillance which will be conducted during the winter and summer breaks.

During 2018-19, in preparation for building the new secure entrance vestibules, there may also be removal of asbestos containing materials at any of the AHERA sites. This will only be done at sites if the construction of the new entrances is in an area with asbestos materials.

Questions about asbestos abatement and AHERA compliance may be directed to Sidney Winters, Environmental Specialist, Maintenance Department, 360-662‐8299.
