Asbestos Notice

In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), South Brunswick School District is required annually to inform all parents, teachers and staff as to the availability of our asbestos management plan as well as any activities which have taken place in the previous year.

A periodic surveillance of asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) is performed in all District buildings every six months. A complete re-inspection of all buildings containing asbestos is completed every three years and was last completed in January 2008.

Information about these inspections is included in the AHERA Asbestos Management Plan which can be found in each school's main office and at the Board of Education Maintenance Annex located at 4 Executive Drive, Monmouth Junction. Over the past year, the District has removed asbestos-containing materials from the following areas due to maintenance and/or renovation activities: Cambridge, Greenbrook and Monmouth Junction schools.

The District continues to update and improve the AHERA Asbestos Management Plan. This work includes the sampling of materials that were originally assumed to contain asbestos. Questions or concerns should be addressed to Todd Amiet, Director of Buildings and Grounds, (732) 297-7800, Ext. 5109.
