Environmental Management Services
The Facilities Division is responsible for complying with multiple Local, State and Federal statutes, environmental laws, codes, inspections and permitting regulations.
In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986, the Facilities Division manages the Manchester School District’s compliance with the AHERA regulation and appoints a designated contact person to ensure the responsibilities of the local education agency are properly implemented as well as maintaining and updating the asbestos management plan. The designated contact person is required to perform periodic surveillance of known or suspected asbestos-containing building materials as well as to ensure that a properly-accredited EPA professional agency is selected to perform the three year AHERA re-inspection and prepare the revised management plans.
The Facilities Division contracted an EPA accredited professional agency to perform the School District’s three year AHERA re-inspection and to provide the district with an updated management plan. Copies of the individual 2014 Asbestos Management Plans are available to the public at each of the School's administrative offices. A complete copy of the Manchester School District's Management Plan is available for viewing at the Superintendent of Schools Administration Office at 195 McGregor St., Suite 201.
