Asbestos Awareness

  • In compliance with the notification and record keeping requirements of EPA's 40 CFR, Part 763.93 (g) (4) Asbestos-Containing Materials in Schools Law (more commonly known as AHERA-(Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act), Innovative Arts Academy is notifying organizations and families of the availability of the Asbestos Management Plans.  A copy of each building's Management Plan is available in the Maintenance office.

    The management plan includes: inspections and physical assessment reports, training requirements for the custodial and maintenance personnel, plans and procedures to minimize disturbance of any asbestos-containing materials, and if applicable a program for regular surveillance and inspection of asbestos-containing materials.  Also, every three years, an asbestos re-inspection of the school will be conducted to comply with the AHERA law.

    Innovative Arts Academy is complying with all regulations in regards to any ACBM (Asbestos Containing Building Material) and there is no need for safety or health concerns relative to asbestos exposure.
