    Yearly AHERA Notification

    To Parents, Guardians, or Staff Members

    The Readington Township Board of Education, in accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) 40 CFR Part 763 Subparts C, E, and M, is required to notify parents, guardians, and staff members annually of any pertinent changes in the district relating to asbestos-containing materials. The inspection reports are on file at each individual school and a complete district-wide set is available in the Board of Education Office. All asbestos-containing materials within the district are part of an ongoing Operations and Maintenance Program to keep the materials properly maintained.

    During the 2022-2023 school year, there were no further changes to the condition of any of the asbestos-containing materials within the district as identified in the District's Asbestos Management Plan. All materials are being maintained as per the District’s Operations and Maintenance Plan, as determined by periodic surveillance completed during the fall of 2022 and in the spring of 2023.

    During the 2022-2023 school year, the facilities department staff received a 2-hour asbestos awareness training session. The annual training follows AHERA requirements for facilities personnel who may come in contact with, or disturb, asbestos-containing materials.

    In the fall of 2023 and the spring of 2024, in accordance with AHERA regulations, there will be a required 6-month periodic surveillance reinspection of the identified asbestos-containing materials in the Asbestos Management Plan. The inspection reconfirms the location and condition of the asbestos-containing materials. The Asbestos Management and O&M plans were reviewed in the summer of 2023, and no updates were needed based on the inspection results.

    Should you have any questions regarding the Asbestos Management Plan or the condition of asbestos-containing materials within the district, please contact:
