The Florence City School System continues to remain in compliance with EPA’s Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1986. All Florence City Schools have been inspected by an EPA-approved asbestos inspector and maintain a management plan file in the school office as required under the AHERA regulations. The file is available for any parent to view. Most of our asbestos containing materials are in the form of floor tiles and are non-friable. All friable (able to crumble with hand pressure) asbestos in our facilities has been removed. These materials are well maintained. The law requires that we make this notice to all employees, students, and staff annually.
The Florence City Schools Board of Education is proud to provide a healthy atmosphere for students and staff.
Asbestos management plans are on file at the Board of Education and at the main office of each school. They are available for review during normal business hours. If you have questions, please contact David Wigginton at (256) 768-3045.
