Re:                         Notification of Asbestos Inspection and Management Plan Availability


To:  Whom It May Concern:


The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires all schools to conduct detailed inspections to identify all asbestos containing building materials that may be present in the school environment.  AHERA requires the inspection results and the associated Management Plan to be submitted to the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ).  A copy of the Management Plan must be maintained at the administrative office for review by the public.

Seventh Ward Elementary maintains a proactive asbestos awareness program.  Periodic surveillances (every six months) are performed by a qualified individual to assess the condition of the remaining asbestos containing building materials (ACBM).  All of this information is updated in the Management Plan and available for review.

This letter of notification is an annual requirement to the public.  If there are any questions, please contact the Designated Person, Danita Duffy, at 225-686-4212 for more information or assistance.
