The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), approved by Congress and signed by former President Ronald Reagan, required public schools to inspect school buildings for asbestos-containing materials and to design a management plan to deal with any asbestos found in those buildings.
Plainfield Community School Corporation inspected all buildings in the spring of 1985. In 1989, the school corporation implemented the final approved management plan. The required three-year inspection was conducted in June 1992, July 1995, July 1998, April 2001, October 2004, October 2007, April 2010, October 2013 and October 2016. Periodic inspections are conducted.
In accordance with the US EPA’s AHERA Standard (ref: 40 CFR 763.80), all information concerning asbestos-containing materials in the schools of the Plainfield Community School Corporation is available for review and copying by students, staff and guardians during normal business hours.
