Asbestos Control Effort

  • The Columbia School District continues the long-term task of monitoring all asbestos in district buildings. In order to comply with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act passed in 1978, the district has spent more than $2 million removing asbestos-containing materials.
    Surveillance occurs every six months or less; a complete inspection happens every three years.
    Copies of the asbestos management plans for each school are available for review by contacting the main office of the school in question.
