Asbestos Hazard Public Notice


In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), Cheney School District contracted with Educational Service District 101 of Spokane, Washington to conduct a three-year asbestos re-inspection of all school buildings. An EPA-accredited Asbestos Inspector and Management Planner is performing the required inspection and reassessment of each category of asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) and noted any significant changes from the 1989, 1992, 1995, 1998, 2002 , 2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2015, 2018, and 2021 inspections. Re-inspections will assist the school district in the process of safely managing each ACBM within our district.

The AHERA Re-inspection Report and Management Plan (2021) is available to the general public and can be reviewed anytime during normal school hours. A designated person is available during regular District Office hours to answer any questions regarding ACBM in our buildings. The designated person can be contacted through the District Office.

Non-friable ACBM are present in most of the District's buildings. All known ACBM are listed in the District's management plan, and were found to be in good condition and are being continually maintained in accordance with all Washington State and Federal laws.
