Asbestos Management Plans

The School District of Lancaster maintains Asbestos Management Plans in the offices of each school building. Plans are available for inspection during normal business hours. The plans may not be removed from the school office, but copies may be requested in writing, at a reasonable cost. Please allow up to five business days to fulfill requests.

For questions or additional information please contact the District Asbestos Program Manager at the Facilities Management Department, 291-6106. This notification is required under the regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (40 C.F.R. 763.93(g)(4)), adopted pursuant to the Asbestos Hazards Emergency Response Act.

Integrated Pest Management Plan

The School District of Lancaster uses an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach for managing insects, rodents and weeds. From time to time, it may be necessary to use pesticides registered by the Environmental Protection Agency to manage a pest problem. A pesticide will only be used when necessary, and will not be routinely applied. When a pesticide is necessary, the school will try to use the least toxic product effective. Applications will only occur when general access is restricted in the area(s) being treated. Notices will be posted in these areas 72 hours prior to application and for two days following the application.

Parents or guardians may request prior notification of specific pesticide applications made at the school. To receive notification, you must be placed on the school’s notification registry. To be placed on this registry, please notify the district in writing and specify school building and send to:
