Asbestos Program Update

Hastings Public Schools would like to inform all parents, staff, and community members that ISD #200 has a complete and updated Asbestos Management Plan dealing with asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) within the District’s buildings. As required by Federal law, the condition of all ACBM in our schools is thoroughly inspected every 3 years by a state certified inspector. In addition, asbestos containing building materials found in routine maintenance and other accessible areas are surveyed every six months as part of an ongoing operations and maintenance program. Identified concerns from these inspections are remedied by professional asbestos abatement contractors in a timely manner.

The most recent 3rd Year Re-inspection was completed in December 2015 by IEA.  The latest six-month surveillance was recently completed in June of 2017. There were no asbestos removal projects completed during the 2016-2017 school year. The inspections, surveillance reports, and abatement reports are available for review at the District Office. Please contact the District’s “Designated Person” for asbestos management, Jim Huberty, at (651) 775-2477.
