NORTH PLATTE PUBLIC SCHOOLS
North Platte School District’s parents, guardians, teachers and employee organizations are informed of the following.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation Asbestos Containing Materials in Schools (40 CFR Part 763) requires each school building to maintain a complete copy of their Asbestos Management Plan with up to date inspections in the Administration Office. Building employees, hired contractors, occupants and occupants’ parents or legal guardians must be informed once a year of asbestos related activities conducted, in progress, or scheduled within that year.
The school is required to have a State of Nebraska accredited Asbestos Inspector conduct a re inspection every 3 years of known or assumed asbestos containing materials within our school buildings to insure asbestos containing materials are maintained in good condition. Inspections do not disrupt class times or class scheduling. And every 6 months after the re-inspection, required periodic surveillance is conducted by an adequately trained person.
The Management Plan for our school district is available for review to all school personnel, public, state and federal representatives during normal business hours with proper notice.
Airborne asbestos contamination in buildings can be a significant environmental problem and you can be assured that we are in compliance with all relevant regulations.
For asbestos questions or information, please contact the school’s designated person at (308) 535-7100 or the Environmental Protection Agency- Region VII office at (800) 471-7127 or go to their web site at www.epa.gov/asbestos/asbestos-
