    Annual Parental Notification of Asbestos Management Plans

    This notice is to inform all parents, faculty and staff of the availability of the asbestos
    management plan for each building under the jurisdiction of the Council Rock School District
    (CRSD), as required by law. In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act
    (AHERA), 40 CRF Part 763.93, CRSD conducted initial inspections of all the School District
    buildings for the presence of Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) in 1988. An
    asbestos management plan for each building was developed at that time, detailing the location
    and condition of all ACBM along with the short-term actions to be taken to protect building
    occupants, and documentation of response actions. These management plans are available for
    review by any interested person at either the Council Rock Maintenance Facility located at 301
    Twining Ford Road, Richboro; or at the individual School during normal working hours.
    AHERA regulations require re-inspections of all ACBM every three years by an accredited
    building inspector, and this includes an update of the Management Plan. The latest 3-year reinspection
    and management plan update was provided by Synertech, Inc. in August of 2011. The
    AHERA regulations also require surveillance inspections of all ACBM every six months, by an
    individual with training and knowledge of ACM. The latest 6-month surveillance inspection and
    report was provided by SSM Group, Inc. in March of 2012. These reports and management plan
    updates are also available for review by any interested person at either the Council Rock
    Maintenance Facility located at 301 Twining Ford Road, Richboro; or at the individual School
    during normal working hours. SSM Group, Inc. was contracted by CRSD in March 2012 to
    provide the required re-inspections, and assist CRSD in compliance with all other requirements
    of AHERA, through the year 2014.

    The following buildings are documented as containing no ACBM due to new construction, or
    renovations in which all ACBM was removed:
    Council Rock High School – South
    Hillcrest Elementary School
    Newtown Elementary School
    Richboro Elementary School
    Sloan School
    Welch Elementary School
