In compliance with the federal Asbestos Hazard Emergency Notification Act (AHERA), all known friable material (which contains more than one percent of asbestos by weight or area, and can be crumbled by an ordinary human hand) has been removed from District 63 schools.
The remaining asbestos in non-friable floor tiles in certain areas of each school are maintained and monitored according to state and federal requirements. District 63 will maintain these floors until periodic building improvements are undertaken at each school. Abatement work is performed in compliance with all regulations during summer break or periods when students and staff are not in attendance.
